Spinal Cord Disorders Message Board

Spinal Cord Disorders Board Index

Hi, All,

I posted on this board before and after my ACDF C5-6. I had a relatively good outcome. I also have disc herniations at C4-5 and C6-7, discovered 6 months after surgery. The neurosurgeon said they did not require surgery. I've been living well for 3 years. I run 3 miles/2x per week. I work full-time.

I've noticed a few things:

1) In the past 2-3 weeks, I feel a tremor or weakness in my hands. Like when I try to eat soup and hold the spoon, my hands are a little shaky. Prior to my ACDF in 2007, I did have spinal cord compression with signal change, so I could have nerve damage, but it seems like in the past 3 weeks this is a new development.

2) In all of my scans (for years), I have kyphosis. I am very hunched and wish I could straighten up. It seems to be getting worse. I wish there were a brace I could wear to make me stand up straight.

Does anyone have any comments or similar stories?
