I am 2 months post op c5-c6 neck fusion surgery. I had herniated disk and bone spur causing cord compression which left me almost unable to walk.
After my surgery felt great after 1st month. Everyday I felt like I was getting a little better each day. However since surgery I have gotten 2 terrible migraines which i have never had before and daily headaches.
Over the past week i feel like something happened and I took a small step backwards. Seems like I am limping a little more, the headaches and now feel dizziness.
This is concerning to me because before my surgery I was so dizzy I could not even shower. I also am getting muscle spasms feeling back that I would get in my back, feels like a knot which valium does help.
I am just so worried, could the fusion have failed ? I am still over all much better than pre-surgery but where I was feeling really good and now noticing not feel as well should I be worried?
Has anyone else felt great after surgery then had symptoms return?
It is also christmas time and have been doing alot also.
Any replies I would greatly appreciate it.
