I've read various posts where upon said person has surgery say, cervical/lumbar and then develop Neuropathy?!? Okay, I have had 2 fusions in my cervical spine, was diagnosed with lesions and 'severe' Neuropathy of my right arm - the lesions allegedly affecting my C5-8. I am hoping to get a new cervical MRI within the next 30 days, so I guess I will *know* for sure (as I was told those lesions show bright) on that MRI. Okay, I've been also diagnosed with Neuropathy moderate in my thoracic (T8/9/10) and moderate for both legs. I've had no surgeries in those locations - the pain I experience matches pretty well to the protrusions and DDD I have on MRI plus Arthrosis via the Dermatome map.
So.... do any of you know how or why you developed Neuropathy after a surgery? I have read on what it is, but I still really at the core, *don't* understand it in its base of reason. Thanks in advance - just a bit confused. I know MS (lesions) are still on the table for me, but given I am nearing 50, I kinda doubt it. Now if the MRI agrees, I will freak and get over it, understand it (MS), but I don't think that will be the case. Soo... in a nutshell, what causes Neuropathy with no known present disease? Thanks all!!!
