4 months post fusion. C3 & C4

Hello my name is Kris and 10 yrs ago I was fused at C4 & C5.  Then 5 yrs later C5 & C6.  I was in a car accident that caused the new injury.  I still do not have feeling on my left hand and I have alot of pain in my neck and shoulder blades.  I am trying to go back to work slowly.  I am working a couple of hours each day.  It does cIse me pain.  I was working out three to four days a week prior to the accident.  I am being told it can take up to a year to heal.  The other two surgeries I bounced back within a month.  I am being told that I am at risk due to the other two surgeries And my arthritis.  I feel like a bobblehead this time.  I do not have My strength in my left hand.  I am really concerned.  I get headaches also.  Any suggestions?
