WHEN DOES THE NUMBNESS GO AWAY??
6 weeks post surgery, C5-6, 6-7 fusion. Presurgery moderate numbness in arm and hands, fingers. Moderate to severe stenosis with bone spurs and nerve compression. I have had issues for over 3 years with numbness and finally decided on surgery. 6 weeks post surgery, numbness is worse now than presurgery....doc says it will take time, I am almost 61 and have applied for S/S disablelity, because of my job situation ( drive forklift backwards 90% fo the time and have to hyperextend my neck to see behing me) Does anyone else have to the same issues with the contiinution of the numbness post surgery and how long....thanks
