I had surgery on 21st Dec 2011 (last week). I am 47 years old next week.
I had ACDF C6/C7 but the surgeon also says there is compression at C5/C6 but has not operated on this part.
Am I expecting to much as I still have numbness at times in my fore arm and 3 fingers as well as more pains than I had before I had the operation. The numbness is a different numbness to what I had before the Op if that makes sense? I also suffer from L3/L4 L4/L5 and L5/L6 pain for which I have RF treatment about once a year but since the OP on my neck the L region seems to be a bit better, is this possible?
In the real world could I go back to work in 6 weeks?
Thanks in advance for any replies.......
