Hi guys, I had ruptured by C4/5/6 and had it fused b/c it was pretty bad. The first two weeks after surgery I felt awesome! but I did some activity (walking around, turning my head to my employees, etc.) and it started to feel worse and worse. I'm thinking I may have done this too early in the recovery period. It is now week 3 and all the numbness and tingling in both hands and fingers as well as tongue is back. In addiiton, a lot of pain is back and I didn't even have pain for weeks before the surgery. Did I screw something up from being too active too quickly? It's causing stuttering and I drop everything. The doc says i'm nice and fused and probably just aggravated it due to overactivity. He says things hsould settle down but they never settled down before, they just got worse. I'm now wearing my neckbrace again and taking it easy. but will this numbness/tingling go away? Are there others out there who have had this and experienced this post surgery? Did your feeling come back? My doc won't do another MRI right now b/c he just feels it's just reaggravation of that area, post surgery, but this is really really bad numbness and tingling. I feel like it's getting worse and may not go away.
