Hi everyone,
June ’14 ,I woke up with shoulder pain one morning. The pain got worse in a month to the point that I had to run into hospital emergency not knowing what to do .MRI reports showed mild –severe C4-C6 Foraminal Stenosis due to Osteocyte. The doctor prescribed some oral Steroid which help the pain and I had absolutely no pain for 6 months .However the numbness in the middle finger persisted since then but the strength in my arms seem to be fine as I have been doing weight lifting exercises since then. Has anyone done surgery only due to numbness and no pain?Can delaying the surgery have any implications on the numbness?
