Talking ACDF, throat problem

How long does it take before the feeling like something is in your throat goes away? I dont know which is worse my neck pain or my throat.

Estella, it takes several weeks for things to settle down in there. You have to give things time. Please take it easy. I didn't really feel very good for at least 4 weeks after my surgery. Your throat will get better. You have been through a lot, so it will take time to heal.

Re: ACDF, throat problem

hey estella, I had a 2 level acdf done on the 5th of this month and that feeling went away for me around 7 days after surgery. Some take longer though on this I've been told. minstrel is right because I am almost 2 weeks post op- will be tomorrow and only now am feeling better.
