I have spinal impingement, the left column? Is crushed. Have had 1 injection that really helped for about a year.
Now the pain is roaring back. Left thumb/index, top of hand, forearm and back upper left shoulder are just screaming. I can deal with it but no lie I'm in pain and it isn't fun. Unable to sleep much again. Nerve pain meds Gabepentin does very little. I'm healthy and would be in really good shape if I could go to gym etc. but left arm weakness coming back.
So my question is if you've had this similar issue and you had spinal fusion of just 1 Vertabrae in your neck what was your result?
The Neurosuegeon was very matter of fact that I'd be fixed and back to work quickly and with only 8% loss of ROM.
Has anyone experienced such success? I know many of you have far worse issues than I have. I really want to hear from you who've had a similar scenario and the outcome good or bad.
Thank you on advance
