I'm looking for some advice (reassurance?)
I had my op 3 months ago and in the last 2 weeks my pain has started to return. I wasn't too concerned as pain is expected but it's gotten to the point where I can't sleep properly or comfortably in any position. My movement in turning my neck to the left is limited and the weakness in my right hand is coming back. When I injured myself (I literally woke up in pain with no prior warning) I lost feeling in my right hand as well as strength, but by Feb it all felt normal again. I only see my Neurosurgeon again at the end of March and I honestly don't know what to expect. Reading some of the previous discussions on similar situations, it's pretty scary exactly how much pain people are left with and how little the Dr's seem to care about the pain. I was told this op has a 98% success rate and I could return to my normal life but that certainly is not proving to be the case?
