4 months ago I had a cervical laminectomy. Some of my symtoms were relieved right away. Some have not gotten any better since. I have numbness , slow stiff movements and basic loss of fine motor skills in my hands and fingers. This prevents me from playing the guitar which has always been important to me and leaves me depressed. Is there a possibility or probability of whether or not I will improve enough to play again? My surgeon said anything that is going to get better will get better within 6 months. I only have 2 of those 6 months left, with no improvement. Should I just face the fact that I will never play guitar again , or is there still hope? I had been playing for over 40 yrs. when this came on me. I don't know how I feel about never being able to play again.
