Had 3 level (C3-4, C5-6-7) last May 15th. Pain and tingling went away until November, now it's back in full force. Had 2 injections 2 months ago... nothing. Today I went to a neurologist. She said my MRI from 2 months ago looks kinda bad. I think my surgeon is sugar coating it. Going to get an EMG in 2 weeks to see if I would benefit from more surgery (?). Also, she told me to increase my Gabapentin to 600 mg at night.
The burning in my left shoulder and weakness is getting bad. I'm scared, frustrated, and I feel like I'm back at square 1....no, square -10.
3 level ACDF, c3/4, c5/6/7 in May 2012
