I had the acdf surgery c4-7 on October 9th 2014. I felt really good at 5 weeks post op and was even planning on returning to work. One night I woke up with a terrible burning pain down the right side of my neck, down into my left arm to my elbow. The surgen said i had disturbed the nerve root. Since then I have had constant pain in my elbow, and now shooting pains in my hands. I do not see the surgen again until the 9th. I Am concerned that this means the fusion is not working. I am taking 300mg of gabapentin 3x a day. With no relieve. Along with 800 mg of ibuprofen 3x a day. Does anyone know if this is normal?
