My father had cervical surgery C3-C7 microdiskectomy on May 6th 2013. Post surgery he has no use of his left arm and minimal grasp with his left hand but no movement of his arm from wrist to shoulder. They are calling it a C5 nerve palsy. There is not much out here about this complication. Any one else struggling with this? The surgeons are saying wait it out, may be 6 months or more before we see any real improvement. Any advice would be helpful. We live in West Central Illinois.
