Hi everyone I'm new to this forum and just had some questions.
I'm two weeks post op after ACDF C6-C7 with Hardware surgery.
Severe right shoulder, arm and hand numbness, sharp shooting pains, burning feeling like fire from inside out etc for 6 straight weeks nonstop.
MRI Diagnosis: Herniated disc C6-C7 pushing on spinal cord.
Post-Op ACDF C6-C7 with Hardware 04/03/2012
Day 1-2: Still severe arm/shoulder pain
Hard to Swallow, Neck Pain
Week 2: Not constant arm pain but still presents itself at random movements of my body etc. Neck feels much better.
My question is all and all I am starting to feel pretty good but when I sneeze I have so much pain I almost pass out for a few minutes. I feels like my head and arm want to fall off. Is this pretty typical?
