It's been only 11 days but feels like forever since surgery. When I woke from surgery I had no feeling and was unable to move my right arm/hand. My doctor felt it was do to nerve root swelling and it would improve, which it finally has. I am finally able to use my right arm and hand. I was worried though and found it frustrating not to be able to use it. I started having pin/needles feeling in my leg now - ugh. Called the doctor's office on Monday and said that it was not do to the surgery, but might be related to my lumbar. I had that fusion (L3 to S1) in 2007. Don't need anything more so I am hoping it is just because of positioning and will go away. Can't wait for the swelling to go down some more in my throat. I love soup, but I am starting to want something more to eat.
I'm really hoping this fuses, I really don't want to have to go through anymore, even though I know I may have to...
Hoping everyone else that has had their surgeries are doing well.
