I had a cervical discectomy and fusion at c6/7 on August 12th 2008. Until last week I was amazed at the results. I woke up last Wednesday night and I could not move the thumb or forefinger on my left hand. It took about twenty minutes to regain movement, but I now have numbness in those fingers, and also some new numbness between my shoulder blades and new weakness in both arms. I went to my neurosurgeon and am scheduled for an MRI. I am scared to death and I really don't want to go through another surgery so soon. The Neurosurgeon thinks that it may be a herniation at another level. I just feel so helpless. I am trying to put on that brave front for family and friends, but I can't help but feel like the whole process is starting over again.
