I recently broke my neck and was sent from one emergency room via ambulance to a trauma emergency room. I was told I would have surgery the next morning I would either be cut open in the front and the back because of the damage to my ligaments also besides My c five and c six vertebrae However I was released from the hospital without surgery. Thankfully I have NO paralysis!! I do however, at times, having tingling shoulders and left hand and a strange sensation parallel to my spine. Can anyone tell me if they have been thru this and if they healed in a neck brace without surgery or should I be concerned about not having immediate surgery? Thanks! Melanie
