I had a spinal fusion surgery now have difficulty swallowing food?

I had a spinal fusion surgery done last year, now have difficulty swallowing food. A swelling occurred in supraclavical area. Had MRI, US done. All good. Surgeon says not due to surgery. tested for cushings and it isn’t cushings either. Swelling is on both sides. I am told it is life threatening. But no one has any answers. What can be done? Please help.

Doesn’t seem related to surgery. First get an endoscopy done to rule out intramucosal causes of choking and better understand what is wrong. It could be cystic hygroma (which can show up after surgery ), simple lipoma or Lymphoma from a viral infection. Aspiration is recommended to obtain samples for analysis.
