Pain after acdf
Mar 22, 2003
i had 2 level acdf c3-4-5 with titanium and doner bone in may 2002. i had pain in shoulder,arm and hand. i also had muscle atrophy in deltoids and bicep on the left side. i am still under doc's care because of a loose screw. more xrays this month to see it has moved any more. i wasn't able to lift my arm above head level. i had 2 months of pt prior to surgery which didn't help. after surgery i hit the gym along with yoga {hatha and bikrum} and pilates. i have rebuilt size in my arm and have decent flexability but still a little light on stamina. my main problem is still having pain in my entire traps. it alternates sides and runs from the base of the skull to the bottom of the shoulder blade.i have been sleeping with my cervical collar which helps some and adding nasids and muscle relaxers which seems like it may be a way of life. well maybe i can get some answers at my next visit.
