A member asked:

Are these symptoms normal after having fusion done in my neck back in march(c5-c6), burning, pinching, and numbness in left arm?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Can be: If there was significant neural compromise prior to the fusion, then the ongoing radicular symtpoms may be slow to resolve. If these are new complaints, then the possibility of a nonunion of the fusion or adjacent segment abnormalities needs to be considered. This would require re-evaluation with the surgeon that performed your surgery.
