Swelling between neck and collarbone after neck surgery, headache

Hi, I had neck surgery c3-4 last year. I have a constant swelling just under the incision and between my neck and collarbone. When I use my right arm for any reason the swelling gets worse,and my headache becomes more intense and spreads across my face. If I use the arrm for a prolonged period,5-10 mins,the swelling becomes even larger.

Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
I would suggest you to repeat MRI of the neck to confirm the cause of the swelling. If there is any abnormal tissue then it has to be addressed. some time it is nothing but just fibrosis. I would also suggest you to take pregabalin and methylcobal after discussing with your doctors . If there is increase in swelling then show it to surgeon who operated your disc.
