Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Hello
Clearly this can be irritation of the cervical nerves from the spinal problem.
This might be of now consequence, but needs to be examined and a follow up MRI after surgery should be considered now, looking particularly at the posterior spine.

Thank you very much for your reply, I have booked an appointment with my GP for this afternoon. I am due to have an MRI scan on the 29th April but am a little concerned that these symptons are serious and I should maybe be seen sooner! I shall see what my GP says, but Thankyou again for your reply.

I agree that you should move up the MRI if possible.
