My surgery on Thursday was a breeze. I awoke feeling most of my left arm which was great news. I was in recovery a very short amount of time and as soon as I got to my room I didn't even get in the bed but instead started walking the halls. I do have an issue that appears to be worsening. I awoke to small spasms in my arms and legs. They are getting more intense and I know they have something to do with the spinal cord damage that the doctor told my husband was bad. The doctor stated he did not know how I was functioning with that much damage in my neck and that I was very strong welled to had still been mobile before surgery. Now, these spasms are getting bad enough that just walking around the house is becoming a chore. I am very unstable and I really want to go for a walk but can't flex my feet at all when walking, I waddle like a duck right now, a very drunk duck that is!
Did anyone else experience this issue and was is permanent or did it lessen as the swelling and inflammation reduced? I know I am just playing a waiting game right now and with this being a long weekend getting to the doctors to get a shot to relax my muscles is not an issue. I am not sitting at the ER this soon after surgery and expose myself to every no virus and cold out there right now.
