Numbness after Surgery
I am 9 Months post op and doing well.  I have some tingling to deal with but that case it can take time for them to heal.  I have my fingers and arms and legs different parts of my body.  I had something happen a few days ago that hasn't before.  My tounge started to tingle some. Has that happened to any one before?  I am going to ask my NS but wanted to know if it is normal with the healing .

  Hi...I know we had some members that had issues with their tongue...so I am sure it is where ur compression was and how the nerves are coming back to life....as they begin to work again we can have some odd sensations....

Do discuss with ur Dr and let us know what u find out.

Hello cash,

Thanks, I take it to three times a day.  I just never had my tongue do this and wanted to make sure it was normal.  Since I know it is going to take time for all the nerves to heal.  I have the other numbness too hands, legs, and occassionally different parts of my body.  The funniest one is my scalp, it feels lilke little worms dumped on your head like a joke as a kid.  The grandbaby thinks it is funny sometimes to watch me rub my arms and such when this starts she tells my wife that papaw has ants in his pants nanna.

my tongue goes numb along with my face, I was dx with occipital neuralgia after several surgeries and I know this is why I have it there. Global numbness and tingling is something I have had since surgery very annoying!

Yes that is when mine started after surgery.  I had a very large syrnix went  from C2-T1.  I was told the reason is my nerves time to heal.  It hasn't did it since then been about two weeks.  Yes it can get annoying sometimes.  Especially if you are out at a nice resturant and it starts and you start rubbing, people look funny.  Hope mine gets better, but if not already deal with it.  Have a nice day and thank you for your answers and help.
