I had ACDF surgery in August. I had been diagnosed with cervical myelopathy. A bulging disk between C5-6 was pressing against my spinal cord. I had severe muscle weakness in my feet and legs, very little balance, weakness in left arm and hand, pain in neck and between shoulder blades, my feet would drag and toes would bend under, muscle cramps and spasms, and had fallen several times and injured my knees. After the surgery most of the neck pain gradually went away but still have a lot of pain between and below my shoulder blades. Still have all the other physical symptoms plus now I have weakness also in my right arm and hand. I use a cane in the house and a walker when I go out. I am working but have limited duties. I am driving but have extreme difficulty getting out of the car or from any seated position. I have no stamina. I go to physical therapy twice a week. Everyone tells me to be patient but have no real answers for me and no one can answer why my "good arm/hand" is now affected. I'm discouraged and more than a little scared.
