Hi, I am almost 3 months post op from anterior cervical discectomy with fusion, from C4 - C7. I am having lots of problems with major sore throat, swallowing and choking. Cannot eat or drink well at all, & have lost 16 lbs. I am only 4'8" tall & loosing that much weight is major for me, for I was only 105 before the surgery. Has anyone else experienced these problems after this surgery, and if so how long did it take to get back to normal? Thank you.
