I had a Vertebrectomy 6 years ago this year and I have started getting the same symtoms I had before the op my arms feeling limp and really bad pains down my upper spine. Has anyone else suffered from these symptoms after the operation?


  • Welcome to Spine Health.
    This is a great place to get information about spinal problems and the possible treatments. Also we are a friendly bunch who are very willing to share our experiences and we understand what it is like to suffer spinal pain.

    I have not had a vertebrectomy, so can't help there. The fact that you had relief from the pain and symptoms for about 6 years sounds like there could be something else starting up. Have you had them for long?

    After my 2 level ACDF I still had most of my symptoms and am still hoping, after 6 months, that I will improve.

    It may be time to go and see your surgeon again, or at least have a new MRI scan done to see if there is nerve compression again.

    Please be aware that none of us here are doctors, but are patients ourselves. All we can do is share our experiences and things we have been told by our doctors.
  • Thanks jellyhall Yes I think I will have to go back not sure what is going on really but thank you for your very kind welcome
