Having arm and shoulder weakness, tingling, and pain. for over a year. I may be needing a one level fusion. Can anyone share their experiences that has had cervical fusion. Thank you. Charlie

I am 2 weeks post surgery of a ACDF of C5-6 today. I had been having pain and numbness in my left arm for the entire summer. The pain in my left arm is gone, but I have considerable numbness in my left arm and for some odd reason my left foot is tingly. I won't lie, it's freaking me out a bit. My neck is still stiff and I am over the cervical collar. I had my steri-strips off last week and they told me things were healing and numbness was not uncommon. I see the doctor next week for my 3 week follow-up where I hope to get his opinion on this numbness and also hope to get clearance from the collar and clearance to drive.
