Following the 5.5 hour surgery I had 6 weeks ago, (TLIF & full lumbar fusion) I started to experience radiating nerve pain down my arm and into my hand. I never had this before, and believe it's the unfortunate aftermath of the surgery~not moving and/or positioning.
I've seen a PT twice, and she thought the source was my first rib which is elevated. I'm doing some exercises per her suggestion, and it is very slowly getting better. It was so bad for awhile, it would keep me awake at night.
I'm curious if anyone else has had a similar experience?
