After Surgery - anterior cervical disectomy C5-6 fusion

hi I had my anterior cervical disectomy C5-6 fusion on sept7. It helped me start walking right again. But I still have terrible pain in my left elbow and numbness in my left hand alot. The right hand has a little. Is all this normal?
I am a nursing assistant and I was wondering when do people go back to work? Did anyone do any physical therapy? I just am a little confused on how your supposed to feel after this and was wanting some feedback.

thanks, Michelle
