Two weeks ago had cervical surgery for c3-4- bone spurs pressing on spinal cord. surgeon went through right side of neck. now experiencing a funny pressure at the base of my skull up into my head. Is this normal?
Some pain is expected after cervical surgery. However, the pain can also be due to cervical spinal nerve compression or due to CSF leak. It can also be due to muscle injury. Please take your prescribed pain medication and if the pain persists please consult your doctor immediately. Take care!
