    how long does it take to get relief from pain after a cervical discectomy with fusion

    how long does it take to get relief from pain after a cervical discectomy with fusion. It has been about 6 weeks since the surgery, Everyday I wake up and pray that the pain in my arms and hands will be gone, but my prayers continue to be unanswered. Has anyone else experienced this and eventually gotten better?

    Re: how long does it take to get relief from pain after a cervical discectomy with fu

    I had instant relief of most of my syptoms in the first week after surgery. I did have some residual symtpoms (similar to what you describe) that took a while to resolve. Nerves heal very very very slowly so it can take a while.
