Pain after fusion surgery
I had acdf surgery on 5/6 n 6/7 almost a month ago. Before the surgery I had mainly right sided pain and weakness into my right arm and hand period after the surgery I am now experiencing pain on both sides and both arms as well into my upper arms which I've never had before it was always the lower arm and hands. When I went for my checkup doctor said everything was normal and that this was referred pain. I do know some of this is muscle spasms in my back I can feel that but the pain and numbness into my upper arms is totally different and I can tell this is not muscle spasms. I wear my collar most of the time to sleep in because it's too uncomfortable not to. But they told me I don't need to wear the color except when I'm in a car or walking outside. I have neck pain which I pretty much figure is normal however still experiencing pain into my pinky finger and the one next to it on my right hand is anyone else having the same problems.
