Cervical myabpathy surgery c5 - c6 laminectomy
I had surgery 15 Sept 2015. After 6 weeks I had my check up and all seemed cured up as far as the actual incision. However It has been 3 1/2 months and I still have a swollen left hand that pains most of the time and feels very sensitive. At times I get a sharp pain in both elbows which is very annoying. The left hand keeps me awake every night. My surgeon said that it would take up to 6 months to get back to normal but I may never get clear of all rhe pain. I dont have much strength in both arms and dont want to try and over strain to worsen the pain. I am taking Ketorolac FCT 10 mg but this does not eliminate the pain entirely. Anyone ave any suggestions?

I have the same thing you do. I am a bit reluctant to have surgery though. My legs are always slow and heavy, but no pain anywhere.
