Last week my PT was more aggessive with massage and also gave me more exercises to do, I agreed to myself that I was ready. On next visit I was stiffer, and in more pain, my left foot felt weaker, all of which I told her. She asked if anything had happened, any "jolts", when I did remember stoping short, not short enough that my bag went to the floor, and I was wearing a soft, she then said that I had whiplash. I really thought I was stiff from her massage, but didn't say anything, and she again did less my next 2 visits. Tomorrow I am going back, and am getting concerned about my symptoms. Over the weekend my rt arm had similiar pain that I had preop, the kind of pain that I went to the ER for, and was admitted for pain control, luckily it only lasted around 10 min, it's the first time I have had this pain since surgery. Yesterday my right arm was tingling, and then my hand started to hurt and tingle. I thought when I went to bed things would relax, but this morning my hand was numb, and during the day it has continued to hurt, tingle and be numb. I am concerned that something has gone wrong, my apt with the surgeon is next week. I am very frightened, especially since it's been bothering for days now, and my foot remains feeling weaker then it has been. I know the PT said that if my foot remains weak that I should call my surgeons office, which is something I don't want to do, since I will only get as far as the office manager, and she will say all is expected after spine surgery...does this sound normal to you, I am 11 weeks post op ACDF C5-6.
