Hello, welcome to just answer and thank you for your question.

I think it is probably due to the soreness associated with the operation. You can take an OTC analgesic like advil / motrin. If there is any swelling in the operated area, you can also use ice packs in the neck region.

If the pain increases, please do a PNS x ray.

I hope my answer was helpful to you.Please press the "GREEN ACCEPT" button to accept the answer. FEEDBACK and BONUS would be highly appreciated.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
