I am still early in my recovery---8 weeks post with 3 level ACDF C4-5-6-7 to fix compression against my spinal cord.
I felt sort of a flare up in my shoulder blade and a reduction in fine motor skills in my hands the day after driving over some very bumpy roads in which my neck moved back and forth a lot.
The symptoms are similar to the symptoms I had prior to surgery. I went to the Dr and they gave me an x-ray and indicated everything looked really good, gave me a 6 day dose of steroids and felt good for a while, then symptoms came back again.
This may be a common result of overdoing it due to swelling but wanted to hear any feedback anyone has regarding symptoms returning from time to time after surgery....
