Estelle, so sorry you're having these pains. I had an 2 level ACDF with Corpectomy on the 5th of Feb. I think we are about at the same time of recovery, I am almost 4 weeks out.. When I had my surgery I awoke in recovery with my left arm numb all the way to my fingertips. I had a 3 day hospital stay and was adament about coming home. Since I came home I have regained my pinky and ring finger but the rest is still asleep. I went through pains much like you. Pains in my neck, shoulder and all the way to my fingertips. That left arm really drove me batty with the pain in it. I called my nuero doc and they prescribed me Nuerontin. I take this along with my Flexeril and I have tapered off my Percocets. The Nuero doc explained to me that nerves take a while to settle down, this was probably a result of nerve inflammation, possibly from scaring as I had extensive scaring that he had to clean up. I also had severe spinal stenosis also. Mine was also C5/6 and C6/7. I was able to call freely to my Neuros office and speak to his PA when I had concerns or questions. I am hoping you can call also and find some peace of mind and or help. Also, when I was in the hospital they did more Xrays to make sure everything looked good to explain my left arm probs. All was clear and looked good. Please call your Neurologist as I don't think this is something your regular family doc can address. I hope you can find answers and some help on this. This is a scarey thing and my heart goes out to you.
