I am about three weeks out of my ACDF surgery on C3-C4 and discetomy. I have been wearing my brace and following my post op instructions carefully. When I take my brace off to shower, I notice that the area under my chin above the incision site is totally numb. Should I be worried or is this still a normal part of the healing process? The incision is sealed with bonding glue and looks normal, no discharge or swelling.
Thank you for input.
