Well, I have been home now for two days after spending one day in the hospital. I did pretty well I think. The doctor said he had to spread my neck a little more than most as it had flattened the nerve quite a bit. So far, my forearm is back 100% and my thumb is back at 50%. However, there is a spot in the middle part of my back behind my right shoulder that still has pain. The doctor says he thinks it will ease up as the nerve gets back to normal so for right now, I am keeping ice on it as heat makes it hurt worse. I think my new disc is going to work out quite well. I had a really great doctor and I am very happy.
Congratulations on a successful surgery! Hope your recovery improves every day!
