I had a 2 level cervical surgery on 11/27. The pain and numbness I had prior of the surgery was gone when I woke up from the surgery. However my left arm was hurting and is still currently. It is constant I also have numbness and tingling to my fingertips. I can barely raise that arm. This is more painful than my right arm prior to surgery. I have had 3 rounds of prednisone, I take 600mg of Gabapentin 3 times a day and 10 mg of Percocet every 4 hours. Prior I took no medication.
Has anyone else had this happen? I had been told I would be able to return to work 2-3 weeks after surgery. That did not happen.
Thanks in advance for any input.
