I am new to this board and I hope that my membership can help others as well as help me. I had ACDF C5-6 done on March 4, 2011 and right away my pain in the neck, soulder, and left arm were gone. But as of the last few days I have been experiencing some pain on my left shoulder and left forearm and wrist which has me worried. Is this normal?
I have not been doing any PT the DR did not prescribe any and I have not been exercising, he told me it was ok to walk if I wanted to but I have been lazy, too tired. I went back to work after a week, no collar, and was on pain meds and muscle relaxants for only a month. I see the Dr for my second month follow-up and x-ray next week.
Any responses or advice welcome, thanks!
