I am facing another cervical surgery soon due to severe C7 root compression. My xrays show a solid fusion after a successful C6 C7 ACDF some 18 months ago. I now have severe weakness and my tricep muscle has atrophied or wasted away. Has anyone had this happen to them? Also will I be able to get the muscle bulk back? I think this is a result of the nerve being damaged. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Bethy
