It's been 12 days since my acdf 5-6 and that's going well. I have a lump in my arm/wrist below where the iv was. When he inserted the IV in my hand it was painless. After it was in, my forearm burned really bad but I didn't say anything (don't want to be wimpy you know). I've had a lump ever since it was removed the next day and it is very sore and painful. The reason I'm beginning to wonder is because I keep breaking out in a sweat and feel like I'm burning up. Last night the skin on that arm, underarm and shoulder got so sensitive that it hurts for clothes to touch it. Ever had your skin feel sore? I really didn't connect these things until a little bit ago when I was trying to figure out what's wrong with me. Also last night the back of my neck got so stiff...and still is. More than what was normal since the surgery. What do you think? Could there be a problem from the IV site? I've had these lumps before after an IV but the rest is different. Maybe I'm just crazy and I hope that's it. Just wondering if any of you had something like this? Thanks for reading.
