Ok. I'm about to panic here. As most of you know, I had an ACDF C5-6 on Oct 4 for pain in neck, shoulders, left arm and hand pain and tingling. Up until a couple of days ago all of my arm pain was gone other than a twinge or two. The past two days it's been hurting pretty bad in my bicep and I'm about to panic thinking it's coming back! It's a different pain than presurgery. Is this normal? I know I'm early yet and honestly I do panic when I think maybe the surgery didn't take care of it. I was told it may not take care of everything because "the rest of my spine isn't great". I've been bouncing around here telling everyone how great I am and now I'm afraid. I always think positive thinking is the key so I try my best but...I think I read somewhere that arm pain when healing is normal right? Just looking for some reassurance I guess.
