11 Months Post Op ACDF

I had an ACDF performed 11 months ago on C5/6 and although I have always had some numbness/weakness since the surgery, over the last month I have really began to have more frequent problems. My left arm always feels heavy/weak and most of my pain seems to stem from my shoulder/scapula and radiating down to around my tricep. Naturally I get the numbness in my left hand and occasionally burning/numbness in my shoulder. I had my MRI about a year and a half ago and I had mild bulges of the Discs above and below the fusion sight. I am hopeful that one of them hasn't gotten worse and is causing this. I have an appointment to go see my Neurologist already lined up. Anyone else had such "luck" with this?


  • I just wanted to say I hope you get some relief. My doctor wants to do neck surgery on me but I won't have it unless I'm dying! The doctors told me that once you start fusing it can set off a chain reaction! I really hope you get some comfort . I'll pray for you !
