4 1/2 months post op...Numbness

So I'm 4 1/2 months post op, ACDF 5-6, 6-7. This past week the weather starting getting colder here in Georgia. I'm not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I feel like I'm back to pre-surgery feelings again...a lot of numbness and tingling in my right arm.

Has anyone else experienced this from weather changing or is this just another part of recovery? I felt great until about a week ago. Of course, as usual, I have a call in to the doctor's office about this.


  • I had a 1 level ACDF C 6-7 & when I sit in A/C & it hits my neck I have pain & numbness again. Also when it rains I have neck pain but it is not as intense as before surgery.
  • Here in Georgia, as well post op 6 months and had acdf C6/7. I have been in more pain than before the surgery. Not to mention the numbness and tingling are worse too.

    I am interested in your ordeal and the information about it. I will send a PM.
