phrenic nerve

Posted by seniordon09 @seniordon09, Jul 24, 2022

I had cervical spine surgery 5 years ago it failed ! About 1 year ago the left side of my diaphragm got paralyzed. I am wanting to know if my breathlessness might be because my phrenic nerve might be damaged ?

@seniordon09 You may be interested in these discussions where members discuss the phrenic nerve, and also a surgeon who does nerve grafting to replace a a malfunctioning phrenic nerve.

Have you discussed a possible nerve injury with your spine surgeon, or if that isn't possible, have you sought a second opinion from another spine specialist or neurologist?
