Hi I am after some advice as I don't know anyone that has had this surgery!
I am 12 weeks post acdf surgery on c5 and c6. All was well until last week when I noticed some general neck stiffness when turning my head to either side. Over the past week have been getting increased shoulder pain and a return of tingling of my left hand and loss of grip on my left hand. I'm frequently taking tramadol to ease the pain and I am still on 30mg of amitryptyline at night - my follow up is not for a month - anyone have any ideas? Should I go and see my gp before my follow up appointment ?
