Hello everyone. I am a 65 year old male who underwent ACDF Fcervical surgery with fusion (one level) and hardware to address cervical stenosis that was effecting my coordination and causing weakness in my left leg. I never had actual pain in my neck however prior to the surgery. It's been about 6 weeks and the back of my neck still aches despite stretching exercises and physical therapy. My question is, will the pain ever go away? For the record, I have also had multiple level lumbar surgeries - fusions, cage and hardware. The most recent a year and a half ago - L5-S1. Could there be a relationship? Thank you so much. Great forum, great folks, great information.
