    I had an acdf in January. Everything is fine but I have numbness from my chin to the incision site. Is this anything to worry about or is it a result of the nerves that were cut during surgery needing to regenerate before the numbness goes away?

    There are sensory nerves in the skin that can be disrupted from the incision. It is unusual to have a larger area with numbness. Normally, within six months the sensation returns.
