    tingling 2 3/4 years after 3 level cervical discectomy & fusion

    Has anyone had tingling in lower legs and lower arms years after cervical fusion? I've had 3 levels done. Anterior discectomy with fusion and plating. Now at night I have a lot of discomfort in the area between my shoulder blades on my spine. My legs fell tingly in the moring etc. Does this mean I'm having trouble now in a lower level of my spine. I have heard that it is common to have more problems later on... please help

    Hello,
    Sorry to hear about the new "old" pain....I had ACDF w/hardware done 4 weeks ago...sounds like you may want to call your neurologist/neurosurgeon and have an MRI...if you've had the new pain for awhile.
    Keep us posted!

    You're not alone, Neck.

    Keep in mind, it's not like you had a knee repaired. That spine has a gazillion joints and nerves. See the Doc and find out what's up. It doesn't necessarily mean that your old ACDF went south or that you need additional surgery.
