I last posted at 11 weeks post my c6 c7 acdf, complaining of pains in my hands. Well I'm now 7 months post the op and following an EMG test at 5 months I've been diagnosed with "mild ulnar neuropathy" in both elbows. I had no ulnar issues before the op and my neuro physio thinks the peripheral neuropathy is directly linked to the surgery. I'm wondering if anyone else had such issues and whether they had to resort to further surgery? My surgeon is telling me to wait and see if it gets worse at the moment- I feel as though the pain is worse but I think I am focussing on it too much. My neck is ok if I don't try and stretch it too much- stretching causes it to stiffen up- but I've been assured that my issues in my hands aren't coming from my neck. Did anyone else have nerve pain that lasted this long after the op?
