I am wondering if anyone here who has had spinal surgery (probably neck surgery) had a problem with either moderate or severe mass effect before surgery and how it was afterward. I have moderate increased pressure and it has been causing numbness and tingling on the left side of my face and behind my left eye. I have also had problems with diziness and confusion waking up in the middle of the night when I have pain.
Did anyone else have similar neurological problems before surgery? I've learned that it is caused when the ruptured disc results in spinal stenosis and a backyp of cerebro-spinal fluid.
Do these things completely go away shortly after surgery to repair the blockage?
Any other effects or changes resulting from the surgery? I've had this problem coming on over some time now, so I wonder if it has any other neurologival or psychological effects. I assume the headaches and pain will be less frequent. Perhaps it would also lower the overall tension, frustration, and anxiety...
So, please share your thoughts or experiences if you have had something like this happen or are currently experiencing the same problems.
