Cervical ADR post-op

Hello, I’ve had a cervical ADR about 3 weeks ago c-5, c-7. Recovery seemed to be going fine for the first two weeks, x-ray post-op looked fine. This week would be 3 weeks post-op and I feel terrible. I started feeling very nauseous and getting headaches and now my throat is starting to hurt on the inside where my incision is. I called my doctors office & they told me it doesn’t sound related to the surgery and it sounds like strep throat, which I have a hard time believing but I am going in tomorrow for a check-up. Does anyone have any experience like this post-op? I’m starting to get really worried.
