Uncontrolable twitching and shaking post acdf surgery
Hi all it's been a while since I wrote anything but here goes. I'm 5wks. post acdf c5c6c7 2 levels with 2 plates. My question is does everyone shake and twitch uncontrolably after surgery? Is this normal? I also still have left arm and finger numbness and a whole lot of pain. Still on pain meds. I tried 1 day off of them and cried for hours I hurt so bad, won't do that again. I started PT this week and stiffness and pain are bad. Depression also hit me like a bolt of lightening cried for 3 wks. non stop, now I'm mad because the only reason I had this surgery was to regain the mobility and strength in my arms and grasp but I can't do either. Thanks for listening!!!
