Hello All, I had my second ACDF surgery on Nov. 25th. This time it was fusion of the C3-C4. I am doing Ok, still have some tingling in my hands but not much. Still numb around the incision site. Something cropped up 3 days ago that has me concerned. My tongue started to swell and still is swollen. I have had trouble swallowing and eating crunchy foods, so I steer away from those. I am thinking the tongue swelling may be because of the post op site being on the front of my upper neck. Has anyone experienced this before? I called the surgeons office and they had never heard of this happening after an ACDF. What say you?
