I am almost 5 weeks post op a 2 level tlif. My back issues pre surgery have gone away YEAH.... I did wake up after surgey and complained of lower arm numbness and pain. I was told that it was normal due to being on my stomach fpr almost a 9 hour surgery. I still have the soreness in my lower arm, also almost feels like I mildly burned my arms...which I havent and now my hands are getting cold on a regular basis.
Anyone else experience this?
