I'm 11 weeks post AVR and doing well. The only problem seems to be deep breathing, which causes momentary discomfort in the left hand side of my neck.
However, both on Saturday night and Sunday night my neck really hurt whilst in bed. Last night it throbbed despite taking paracetamol. On both days I'd been out walking in the cold, probably for about 45 minutes.
Does anyone know if that could be the reason? My neck doesn't feel bad this morning. I'm going to cardiac rehab tomorrow so I'll also get their advice. Thanks.
