Hi everyone! I am new to this forum and looking for some support/guidance as I begin the road to recovery from my single-level ACDF at c6-c7 on Monday 8/8. So far, the only major complaints I can offer are the ones I expected: sleeping (yeah right...what sleep?), and swallowing. And the muscle spasms in my neck and between my shoulders...grrr. Otherwise, things have been going well. One thing that has all but disappeared is the intense left arm pain. It has improved tremendously. But, I'm noticing some intermittent radiculopathy in my left AND right arms. These pains come and go and are not nearly as intense as they were pre-op. But they were never in my right arm, so feeling these pains there are freaking me out a little. Before I call my surgeon in a panic, is this just part of the nerve healing after having been severely compressed for nearly two months, then jostled around during surgery? Not looking for medical advice, of course, just other experiences in those first few weeks post-op.
