12 days ago I had ACDF on C5 C6 with donor bone,Titanium plate,screws. Immediately after surgery I felt complete relief from pain to the right side of neck and numbness to my right arm and hand. I am in a hard collar and have been taking it pretty easy. I sometimes forget and bend down. I have been doing some light stuff around the house ie. dishes, picking up. (no heavy lifting) and have been taking walks almost daily. I am 12 days post-op and have some pain return and some slight numbness returning to my right hand. Is this normal or something I should really be concerned about. I will call Dr on Monday but wanted some answers so I don't sit here and worry about it for the next 24 hours. Thanks in advance.
