Question >

I received cervical disc herniation surgery about a year ago, but I continue to have pain. I am experiencing a sharp pain from the left forefinger to the arm and pain from the right rib to the right leg. Also, I get tired easily and I have weakened legs and back pain while sitting down.


Answer >

If you are experiencing pain even after the surgery, there are possible reasons. Your disease may be caused by the stimulation around the nerves. The nerves around the surgical site may have been adhered. The removal of the herniated disc and subsequent narrowing of the disc gap may have suppressed the neural foramen, a hole through which nerve branches pass. After the diagnosis, if the neural adhesion in the surgical site is the cause, the disease can be treated with epiduroscopy .
