My mom is 59yeras old. She had ACDF in January. Months after she still is having difficulties with swallowing. Is that common after all this time? her surgeon told us just to be patient and that make me mad, because she really have hard time and she became very weak.

As I know with most patients problems with hoarseness, sore throat, or difficulty swallowing may occur during the first 2 weeks after ACDF, although it happens Sometimes that the recurrent laryngeal nerve that innervates the vocal cords does not work for several months after surgery. If you don’t think that he is paying much attention on your mother ask for second opinion.
