I'm 23 years old and 16 days post-op C5-C6 fusion. I also noticed some lack of feeling just above my incision. I also feel a small lump just above the didn't mention a lump. I spoke to the PA that works with my surgeon and he explained it to me this way: once the incision is made through the skin, there is a very thin muscle running the length of your neck that they also have to cut through lengthwise. The lump I feel is the muscle fibers bunching as they heal. He also said that because of that bunching, there may be some lack of sensation in the nerves in that area. He said the lump will slowly heal/disappear and sensation will return. I hope this helps. Happy Healing!! :)
