Just wanted to see if anyone else has had this happen.
2 weeks after my acdf of c5c6 I was doing pretty good then out of nowhere me left arm went completely numb , fingers and all. I couldn't raise, for a moment thought I might be having a friigen heart attack . After that subsided over a few hours I have had a piercing pain going down the left side of my neck into my shoulder. If I sniff or cough lightly , it almost brings me to my knees. None of these things bothered me the first 2 weeks after surgery. Any comments would greatly be appreciated
