Recently had cervical fusion of c4 - c7, cadiver bones, had a pinched spinal cord, severe muscle spasms in right arm. I am three weeks post-op, I did not regain my thumb, it remains numb and my right arm is weaker than my left. I have the burns in my shoulders and still having trouble w/swallowing. I am applied for social security disability, has anyone had similiar problems are the same as me and received disability? What are my chances of winning my case, I am 45 year old female.
