I just had acdf for sever spinal compressing c2-c3. It s been at least three months. X-rays look really good but I am now having this sharp tingling sensation down my right arm . It feels like I hit my funny bone on my elbow , but this is not funny. What could this be? I see the Dr. in a couple of weeks. Should I wait or call and make an appt now?

Spine Surgeon 's  Response

If this sensation occur post-operatively I think this is a good sign of neural recovery distal to spinal compression area
you may take some gabapention or pregabalin drug and you will get better soon.

but if the symptom progress in 1 week you should see your surgeon.
