Hi need help and suggestion. My mother 69 yrs of age recently had the decompression of cervical spine in the c3/c4 area. She is now 10 days post surgery & has tingling nerve pain on the back side of the right shoulder which come & goes on movement & has shoulder & muscular pain on the left arm & has restricted movements as well of the arms. Rest all her vitals are normal. Need to know if this alarming or all patients generally go through this pain & how long will she be in pain. Also please advice how long is the recovery process post surgery. Let me know.
