Has anyone here had spinal cord damage due to surgical procedures on your neck. I had ACDF on C5-C6 back in December of 2013. The only symptoms I had was shoulder and occasional neck pain along with numbness in my right hand along the ulnar nerve. After my surgery I was numb from the chest down. Fast forward 7 months later and I have constance neck and back pain. My right hand along the ulnar nerve distribution is numb and my legs have lost a lot of sensory abilitites. It is hard for my right leg to feel hot or cold and I can't tell what my leg is touching. I can feel things with my legs but unless I look at what I am touching I have no way of telling differences in texture or anything else. Before my surgery my neurosurgeon said that my neck has a kyphotic curve and I had 4 mm of space along C5 and 6. He stressed that I needed surgery and now it seems that it has caused more harm than anything else. I now see an orthopedic surgeon and he explained to me that when the surgeon conducted the surgery there wasn't enough space in my spinal canal for his instruments so my spinal cord was beaten throughout the surgery and I sustained a spinal cord injury at the C5-6 level and now I have spinal cord signal changes at C3, C4, C5, and C6. Has this happened to anyone else, or something similiar?
