hi all. iv not been here for ages, i had a fusion at c6/c7 a year and a half ago the numbness and pins and needles in my right arm and hand never left, i still have numbness in my left hand as well, the bone took a year to start to fuse. and my right arm still has stiffness and pain when i try to raise it out away from my body so to speak. is this normal? thank-you for taking the time to read this.
