I had a microdiscectomy on the Cervical spine 5 days ago. I had no pain but had arm weakness pre-op. The doctor said it went well, and he didnt even have to take out any fragments since the disc had healed itself. But now my arm weakness is much worse than before the surgery. WHy? Is this because of inflammation or something? I have no new pains, but now the little finger of my other arm is tingling and a bit numb, and my arm weakness has increaesed. Please help.
