I had surgery to C4-C5 3 months ago. A cadaver bone was used with clamp. Surgery went great. Now I have swollen lymph nodes along the right side of my neck to front and pain to the base of my skull to the neck. It's painful to the touch and it feels like there is something caught in my throat. I was sent to the emergency room. All blood work is normal and CT scan shows slight enlargement of 1.1 x 1.7 cm sinus, and throat and tonsil show no infection. I run a slight fever and it feels large to me; like there is something in my throat..

Scan shows enlarged mesenteric lymph node. I have occasional sparking pain vertically from appendix area upward, and breathing stress with food all the time. While taking pantoprazole helps, it seems that potato chips or products may be the cause of the sparking pain. I wonder if potatoes can cause lymph node reactions. Perhaps an intolerance. I have endoscopy and colonoscopy scheduled. No gallbladder stones. I didn't know about mesenteric lymph nodes before this..
