Couldn't find what you looking for?


I had my surgery July 5, 2006 fusing C-4 thru C-6 with a titanium plate. It has been well over a year and I still feel like there is a lump or something wrong. It is hard to explain to people, it is a sore throat but not like the normal type you get with a cold.

On top of this I also have the added complication that I now get muscle cramps in my throat! The muscle on the right side that runs up under the right side of my jaw/chin now locks up. It is very painful and scary.

Has anyone ever heard of this problem?


I'm having a problem where my jaw tighten and locks. I'm 5 weeks postoperative ACDF. This never happened before.
