After about 4 week post op, I started getting some light numbness in left arm and left leg. By week 7, it's on my right side as well, all 4 limbs. It is very light but noticeable. Thanks God it's not pain. However, I'm still dealing with shoulder blade pain, deep neck pain more to the right, and headaches almost every day. The numbness is weird and moves around. For an example, it t be in the calf area for a while, and will move just below my calf area, and foot. But for the most part it's from my elbows to my finger(s) and from my knees to my feet and toes(s). Anyone experience this numbness stuff, all 4 limbs? When I lay down, it seems to subside quite a bit and when I wake up in the morning, still laying down, I don't have any numbness. When I start moving around, it starts all over again. My 6 weeks follow up with the Doctor, (his PA) at them time was only affecting my left side. He too suggested lumbar problem as well and didn't seem to overly concerned. Now it has worsened. I'm trying to get in and see the acutal Doctor , not the PA to formulate a game plan.
Anyone experience this wide spread numbness?
Could the cage have moved and now pressing on spinal cord? Of course the x-rays look normal but you wouldn't be able to see the cage(s) since they are plastic.
I have requested them to refer me to a Nero ASAP.
