I had my surgery on 07/23 for Herniated Disc/Bone Spur C6-C7 (done through the front of my neck). I woke up from surgery with the right arm pain, numbness & tingling, that I had been dealing with for months, gone. It was gone for a couple of days. Now, almost a week post-op, the right arm pain & the numbness & tingling in that arm & fingers has returned. It's not nearly as bad as it was before surgery, but it is there & it is scaring me. I have also had a lot of pain between my shoulder blades from the time I woke up from surgery. That pain almost never goes away. My question, is this normal during recovery? I struggle so much to find a comfortable sleeping position with wearing my soft collar. I hope I haven't damaged anything that was done during surgery by all of my moving about trying to get the pillows to feel just right each time I go to sleep. Feeling discouraged & depressed today. Does it get better?
