I had my cervical spinal fusion done on October 15th mostly because the compression of my spinal cord was so severe the neuro was afraid a fall or jolt could sever my spinal cord. I only found this out cause I was having pain in my right arm after I was rear-ended back in September. I had a little bit of pain in my arm about one week post-op but now 6 weeks later it's back. I saw my neuro for a follow-up at 5 weeks and he said everything looked great and I was good to go to return to normal activity and no restrictions other than to take it slow and build up to normal activity. I didn't have the pain then but now I do and it has me worried! Has this happened to anyone else? Should I be worried?
