On June 30, 2003 I underwent a cervical discectomy w/ fusion at C5-C6. The first few days after surgery I felt that all my symptoms had either improved or disappeared. Going into the second week after surgery the pinching in my neck returned to full force, headaches and numbness and tingling returned milder than before surgery. My arms and my legs are very weak. I voiced this to my surgeon at my 2 week post op visit and he said this was all normal. Is it? I am in a neck collar for 4 more weeks. Also, how long after surgery is expected for a FULL recovery?? I also have two other bulging discs at C4-5 and C5-6. I am hoping neither of these herniated as well. Any comments appreciated!
