Anyone have a similar throat issue?

Anyone have any experience with Eagle Syndrome?

After some recent neck trauma I went to the doctor with a constant feeling of having a lump in my throat. After getting a CT scan yesterday I was told today that I appear to have Eagle Syndrome and my temporal styloid process bones are abnormally long and one is now rubbing against my throat. Apparently it's pretty rare. I'm being referred to an ENT surgeon. Have any mefites had this?

Specifically I guess I'm wondering:

Did you have it surgically corrected? What was the experience like?
How was the recovery from surgery?
Have you had any further issues with it?

Thanks!
