Cervical Fusion C5,C6,C7
> Dear Sir, I had a two level cervical fusion seven weeks ago because of
> a bone spur that caused cord compression and was actually touching my
> spinal cord. My symtoms were an electrical type sensation running down
> my left arm, numbness from my waistline down both legs and the bottom
> of my feet. I had no neck pain, but if I tilted my head all the way
> back it felt like electricity running down my back and both legs to my
> feet. Now after the surgery the left arm is ok and my arms and legs
> feel stronger, but I still have the numbness from my waist down both
> legs and feet and in my little finger and the one next to it on both
> hands. My legs and feet feel like there is something crawling around
> on the inside of them, but know pain. I have been searching the
> internet trying to find out if these sensations will subside over
> time. I just read your article and it was the best I've read so far.
> What do you think my chances are that these will subside? And also
> what do you think the feeling of something crawling in my legs and
> feet could be? I would appreciate any information you could give
> me. Sincerely, Gary Wooden, Louisville, Ky.
