... Hello, I am hoping to gather some general information and try to make sense of what is happening to me 7 weeks post surgery. I had a spinal fusion at L4 L5 and clean up work there and at S1. I was doing really well until the 6th week post surgery. I haven't done anything I was told NOT to do...bend, twist, lift, etc.. Shortly after week 6, my foot and leg symptoms... (2 replies)
... First of all xrays and MRIs are pretty useless in a case like this. As soon as you know you can get relief from putting your hand on your head plus the rest of the history it is evident that you have a C6 disk causing a C7 root palsy. Triceps becomes weak and also wrist flexors or extensors although you probably don't notice that. Sometimes serratus anterior, the muscle that... (16 replies)
... If you are able to transcribe your MRI report here it would help greatly. Many of us here can help you with terminology. As for me I'm 16 days out of a Cervical Laminectomy with fusion,screws,and rods. The levels involved were C3 - T2. The diagnosis was Cervical Myelopathy. Anyways, I wih you the best. (16 replies)

... tricep. Currently other parts of my arm are hurting, but the tricep doesn't hurt. He says that means it is dying. The MRI was done on Saturday, day one of my prednisone Rx. I took the last prednisone yesterday. I am also taking a narcotic for pain. Tramadol. ... (16 replies)

Post neck surgery
Mar 22, 2009
... Lots of good advice on post-op pain causes, and what to do. I would add to the list - it could be something as 'simple' as inflammation. I've had two ACDFs (fused C4/5/6/7), the most recent in 2005, and I still get pain and symptoms returning. I've found that a course of steroids (like Prednisone, etc) can help get things back under control. At this point I don't expect... (16 replies)

... Yes, I have pictures of my MRI on my computer. I went in on the Thursday before Easter to the ER and was admitted to the hospital right away. Surgery was scheduled first thing Monday morning (the Monday after Easter) so it was very fast. I was losing feeling and had tingling in my left arm and leg along with severe pain in my left-upper back. I've been on Prednisone... (5 replies)
... uch wrong, simply because I don't have a LOT of arm pain and tingling, and because my cat scan showed only mild damage. I went through all this before I had back surgery too..... nothing showed until I had an MRI and then this surgeon put me in for surgery the same week I first saw him. ... (5 replies)

... pack I had like 2 to 3 days relief, then nothing, but boy was those couple days nice. I hope all goes well for you, the waiting before surgery is tough. ... (5 replies)
... Thanks so much Sammy. Trouble is the surgeon's office sends out these strict instructions to PLEASE not contact them prior to your appointment, because they just don't have time to deal with issues till you see the surgeon. They suggest you go to your local GP and if he considers it necessary he should contact the surgeon's office, or go to your nearest ER if you have any... (5 replies)
... Lilly if you are really that concerned call the surgeons office & ask them. I Have taken them numerous times. If I was that bad I would probably attempt taking them. Does not hurt to put a call in & just ask, tell them your concern & that you dont want anything interferring with the surgery. I some how doubt it would but you woul feel better knowing.

... Hi, I see my Neurosurgeon in 2 weeks, and wouldn't be surprised if he doesn't get me into surgery as soon as he can, mainly because I've been almost bedridden for 4 months with pretty severe symptoms from my cervical spine problems. ... (5 replies)
... I really think you made the right decision not taking the prednisone so close to the surgery. It totally makes you much more vulnerable to getting an infection. Why chance it? ... (2 replies)
... I am having surgery soon. Just wanted to let you guys know. I had a 2nd opinion neurosurgeon and he thought, just like the first surgeon, that I need it ASAP. ... (2 replies)
... Here's my past: I just e-mailed our local "Spine Clinic" asking for an appointment. I am fed up with these other "two docs" that have been trying to help me. I am in terrible pain. I am attaching my test results for the last 10 months, tell me what you think. I've included my own notes as well from research I've done on the internet. I've been diagnosed with OA/DDD/and...
