Muscle spasms???
May 26, 2004
... I had acdf (C-6-7) w/titanium plate and screws on 3/02/04. For the most part surgery seems to be successful. I do get occasional pains which I believe to be muscle related. Most are in between the shoulder blade area but some do extend into upper left shoulder region. Sometimes it feels like I have a big 'catch' in my upper back. I would like for others to describe their... (8 replies)

... I will be very interested in the responses here as well. I have a similar problem to what you had, C5/6 and C6/7 both herniated and degenerated to the point where there's not much left of either of them. I'm up near Watertown, NY, and my surgeon I was seeing is in Syracuse also. He would have liked to have done an ACDF to fuse those 3 vertebrae, but the levels above are in... (9 replies)

... As you can see from my previous reply, I'm ready to do something. Thanks so much for replying. I'm thinking if I do the ACDF that I'll use my own bone. It kind of wierds me out having a donor bone in there. ... (14 replies)

... Hi, Lori Thanks for responding. I'm sorry you had such a horrid outcome from your ACDF. Why did you have it - from trauma or DDD or what? And, what was your pain like prior to your surgery? Also, what is a foraminotomy? (sorry for all the questions!) I understand the posterior part of it. I had a staff infection in my foot after a surgery and OMG what pain! I... (14 replies)
... Hi PDL57! I am in the same boat as you. I have a moderate to severe herniated disc at C5-6, with spinal cord compression and nerve root impingement. My pain is also not that bad. I do have a minor loss of strength in my left arm, some shakiness in my left hand, and some occasional tingling in my left arm. All and all, very tolerable for the most part. I have been to...

... Lisa, I'm sorry to hear about all the problems with no movement, then numbness and tingling, etc. It's bewildering the variety of symptoms you can have, even if the surgery is successful. So hang in there, let someone else do the work if you can, and baby yourself for as long as you can. Give your body a chance to heal: it takes so long for neurological stuff to improve! ...
