When will the pain stop?

My wife (52) had a Posterior Cervical Laminectomy (C6-C7), Foraminotomy (C7) Fusion with Instrumentation (C3-T1) on Sept 19, 2012. That was 39 days ago. When will the terrible pain in her hands go away?

Good grief. What a massive operation. Did she really need all that?

I do not have experience with such a big operation. Maybe it's normal for things to take a few months. Was the pain there before the op? Both hands equally?

Re: When will the pain stop?

How sad, my husband just had the same done to him, back in late sept. He is still trying to deal with the pain in his arms and his hands shake alot, he has real bad headaches and we are wondering the same thing, will it get better, who knows. I had a 3 level fusion 3 yrs ago and I am in constant pain. I sure wish your wife the bast. And I am sorry I could not give you some good words on that subject. Would really like it if more people would reply with some good news. Good luck
