Re: Numbness from chin to incision site after ACDF

Hi Nanacan--I just had my 3rd ACDF January 5th of this year, all by C1-2 is fused in my cervical spine. I hear ya, I'm so tired of these fusions. I just found out I've got 3 herniations in my lumbar spine, but not enough to require surgery, yet. The curse of degenerative disc disease. I still have numbness/tingling on and off, and discomfort in my shoulder/neck/left arm. I don't know if it ever completely goes away. Most of my big symptoms have cleared up with the surgeries. I don't think your numbness and tingling is anything that's not ordinary. Every time I go back to see my NS they ask, any numbness and tingling? It takes time for everything to settle down after these surgeries.
