I had neck fusion surgery - C5/6. Simple surgery. But I am still having significant swelling after 7 months. Using my arms or turning my head back and forth while shopping or playing my guitar causes almost instant swelling. I start to gag and my voice changes. It doesn’t really hurt, but it feels like someone has their hands around my neck squeezing. There’s pressure in my head. Very uncomfortable. Sometimes it swells clear down into my chest.
Is there anyone else out there with this same issue? It has not improved at all since surgery. Is there anything I can do?
