I'm a newbie. I had a disc fusion C4/5 and C5/6. I had been suffering from nerve pain, muscle aches and numbness in my left arm.
On waking from surgery I had no pain whasoever - no numbness or anything. I was up and walking the same day and seemed to be getting on really well.
Last night I slept on my left side (I have done so since coming home) and woke up feeling fine. However after about 10 mins I had severe neck ack, headache and left arm ache with tingling.
My surgeon said that no movement or activity was out of bounds as long as I wasn't in pain.
Any advice would be much appreciated.
