I am a 49 year old guy who had ACDF about 6 months ago. I had 3 levels worked on. (C4/C5 - C5/C6, and C6/C7) .
My recovery has been going well. My left arm pain (the reason I had the surgery) went away completely after a month and my post op symptoms such as neck and throat soreness went away and I had a good range of motion with my neck.
But as of a month ago, out of the blue, my arm starting hurting again just as bad as before and my neck is really sore moving up/down and side to side. Also my left leg now hurts and seems a little tired. Also, last night I had a HUGE jolt in my arm and fingers that hurt so bad I jumped out of bed! First time I have ever felt that.
I don't recall doing anything to injure myself. This all just sort of happened. Does anyone have any comments on this? I do have an appointment with my surgeon towards the end of the month, but wanted to see what the group thought.
