Problems after C-4 thru C-6 fusion

Greetings all, I had C- spine surgery Fusion mid October C4 thru 6 and now continue to have tingling in all fingers and hand, pain in left hand and fingers, not the knuckles the bones back pain and continued neck pain. I still lose mu balance and now also have burning in the right upper thigh and the left lower calve. Where the incission was in my throat I lose my voice after talking for a bit and have numbness from the center of my chin down and along the jaw bone to the left ear. In my younger years 27 I had damage to the C-5/6 and wore a halo twice. So kind of got use to the isues there but now a new set of things happened after this proceedure. Anybody have these issues after this type of procedure/

    Hope the extra time, I take it you're 4 months post op now, has let your nerves calm down.  I had acdf c5-c7 fused.  Losing your voice is common as with nerve inflammation after major surgery and it takes time for the body to heal. 2 years post surgey and my neck is still numb from the incision site to my jaw line, but let me stress my case is not the typical. How are you doing now? Has the added healing time improved your symptoms?
