My sister was supposed to have an ADR at C5-6(4 days back), for some reason they had difficulty during ADR and she ended up having a fusion surgery at C5-6. She did not have much pain when she woke up from surgery. For last two-three days she is having extreme pain in her hand, arms,neck & shoulders. She did not have much pain in hands. I hope its the decompression effect. But I cannot be sure because she hardly had any stenosis. Anyone have any words of wisdom? (I know its not a medical advice, from personal experiences).
MRI shows C4-C7 severe steonosis. Pain in hand.
