I just came home from the hospital from having neck surgery, alateral discectomy with single level fusion i think this is the correct name for it. Any way, The incision is in the very fron of my neck ( throat area ) the pain is horrib le despite the meds. I know that this is to be expected with any surgery but what I am concerned about is the healing process of the incision. IT has absorpable sutures inside and a special glue for thr outside. IT is becoming extremely sore and more red than it was but as I understand it this is normal in most cases. My question is being a diabetic with all that glue holding it together and no air getting to it how will it heal enough before the glue begins to come off?
