I am having surgery the first week of March to replace C3- C7. I have been having trouble, pain, for years and recently lost use of my right arm for almost four months while pregnant with my son. We waited for 6 months so I could breastfeed as long as possible, but doctors have deemed March as the longest that I should wait as my spinal cord is being compressed quite a bit now. I have regained about 75% use of my arm, but numbness, pain remains.
My question is, how long did it take to recover? I know everyone is different. I'm getting told everything from a few months to maybe even a year. I'm worried to tell the truth. I have a 2 year old son and a 6 month old and a soldier husband who is in and out of our lives due to his job in the military.
Thanks for your time.
