Hello..I am scheduled to have foraminotomy procedure late July. I am not experiencing any pain, but constant numbness in my left arm. MRI indicates severe stenosis with bone spurring pinching down on C8 nerve. Trying to decide whether I want to have procedure or not. Pain management injections did nothing to help with the numbness. Has anyone had this procedure? I question it now because the pain relief that's mentioned after the surgery is a symptom Im not having. Suggestions?
