I had a 5-6/6-7 ACDF surgery with donor bone and hardware 2 months ago. I read alot of postings in this board how the numbness and pain improved following surgery. However in my case I feel the numbness in my hand and the pain in my neck, shoulder and arm increase after surgery. According to my doctor this is normal as part of the healing process and said to give it more time. Is my doctor right or did my surgery fail and should see a new doctor. :confused: Thanks
5 months post op here. c5-7 w/donor bone and plate. I do not have the numbness in left arm as I did before surgery but the pain in neck and across shoulders is increasingly worse. Went for CT scan on Friday to see what is going on. Doc just keeps saying how well I am doing re: fusion but I sure do not feel any better. No P/T allowed. Wonder if this is just muscle/nerve trying to get used to fusion in neck??
