I still have alot of pain back of neck right side lat and shoulder to elbow some times below, sometimes left side. thumb and first 2 fingers both hands numb. I have a spinal cord implant for lumbar pain that couldnt be placed properly so alot of pain still left leg thigh foot toes butt sometimes right side same. this is a W/C.
