My husband recently had neck surgery and since then he's been having severe loud popping noises in his head that hurts really bad.
His doctors office just told him to just keep an eye on it.
This is a daily issue and they don't seem to concerned bout it.
They said maybe something got caught on a tendon.
Is this a serious issue.
When do these popping sounds occur -- is your husband moving his head beyond normal range of motion? Not a good idea for someone with cervical problems, who has had recent neck surgery.
Who suggested that "something got caught on a tendon?"
If this statement was made by the doctor, please have him explain and demonstrate how that can happen
What does "keeping an eye on it" entail? Has your husband been examined? If not, then your doctor's eyes are not open to your husband's situation.
If this continues, you should find out what's going on, and insist on a better, more technical explanation so that you understand completely what is happening (and so you are assured that your doctor also understands what's happening, and not simply covering up an "I don't know" with a quick answer.)
