My name is Bonnie and I had a Cervical Diskectomy w/Fusion in August of 2005. Three days after surgery I awoke with excruciating pain radiating from my neck down both arms. both arms being very sensitive to touch. Still no diagnosis, doc's say fibromyalgia or rsds but all tests show wrong. With all of my research it looks like I have Cervical Radiculopathy which means that there is nerve compression in my neck. Well that is why I had the surgery to remove a bone spur, put in a bone graph and a metal plate and four screws. So what happened. I cant get a doctor to say that the surgeon messed up. I need help, tired of living on pills and not functioning. Anyone else haveing this same problem?
