... Hi. I had ACDF done on 12/13/12. I too had swelling and redness right after the surgery.

... Jenny, Thank you so much for your words of wisdom. Yes the titanium plate and screw are probably fine. I am having so many more muscle spasms in my neck, shoulders and back.

... Hi Dave....you in Calgary or Kelowna? I'd guess Kelowna form your user name. My brother lives in Kelowna and my former amazing neurologist is now in Calgary.
