I am almost six months post-op and I am having some weird symptoms that I am concerned with. I was not supposed to see the doctor until the end of the month but I called and asked that they put in my next week. I wanted to see if anyone had any similar experience or thoughts regarding my issues.
I am having pins and needles sensations in my mid-back which I did not have prior to surgery. I mentioned this to my doc at the last visit and he did not seem overly concerned. I am also having pain around or under where the hardware is. It is hard to differentiate whether this is muscle pain or not because it feels like it is right on my spine. I have been having pain in my left arm that I did not have before.
I am just really worried (maybe overly so, OK probably overly so) that something is wrong with the hardware/fusion. My worst nightmare is having to go through this surgery again.
