I had ACDF with plating and donor bone C6-7 (11/19/01) after MRI revealed bulging disk. Symptoms were severe pain in left tricep, mild pain in neck, numb index finger and strength loss. Dr. was confident that I would have 100% recovery. Unfortunately, the feeling in my index finger has not returned and I'm having difficulty returning strength and mass to my left arm. It's obvious that I have some degree of permanent nerve damage. Is it still possible to build muscle mass with this type of injury? What is the long-term effect of this type of injury? Although I'm satisfied with my Dr's surgical skills, he has been unwilling to give me a straight answer to the above questions… Any help/advice is appreciated…
