ANTERIOR C3-C7
I recently had anterior cervical discestomy C3-C7  w/fusion.
My question is their some sort of limit of patients receiving IV Fluid after surgery? Due to extensive swelling in my throat and dehydration I was in the hospital 3 and1/2 days.I only received two bags of IV fluids while being in the hospital and asked for additional IV fluids around 9 pm second night but was refused. The flowing day the hospital doctor stated the only thing he could do for me was insert a feeding tube down my throat and keep me in the hospital through the following week.  The entire time I was there I had a very difficult time sipping water of chewing ice and trying to swallow it. It was taking all day just to try and get 2.5 oz of water down without choking.
