I will be having a foraminotomy at C7-T1 in a week or so. While I know the nerve is causing a lot of pain in certain areas I have gotten resistance from doctors to agree that it is causing pain in other areas.
I have a lot of pain in my latissimus muscle that makes it difficult to breath. The lat is innervated by C8 so it makes sense to me that it could be painful because of the compression.
Does anyone have any experience with this? Any input would be appreciated.
