I truly wish someone from Mayo would respond to your question. I’m going through some of the same things and would love to get an opinion from the pain pain management team at Mayo.

Thank you so much for your response and the good news. I’ll speak to my pain med doc immediately.

I’m four weeks post-op for cervical surgery on C4-5-6-7. I now have the feeling that I need to constantly clear my throat, horrible taste in my mouth and still have extreme pain in back of neck in area where surgery was done. Has anyone had this same surgery and dealt with any of these post-op issues? Is so, what help you deal with them?

I’ve had all of that checked. Actually had the LINX device placed last year for acid reflux, and had to have it removed because I lost 40 lbs and I could get anything down. I’ve had every test possible. My swallowing issues started at the same time that my neck issues started. I ha e been diagnosed with spinal stenosis in my neck and lower back.

No to both. It’s food induced.

Good morning. I’m not the one that you responded to, but it was my original post that started the discussion. If I may ask, do you know anything about epidural injections and if they tend to help?

I am so sorry. I’m afraid that I’m beginning to have pain in my neck as well, and have also started having issues swallowing. I’m scheduled to see my pain med doc this week and plan to talk to him about an epidermal injection. I’ll keep you posted. Hang in there. It’s very frustrating.
