Default C5 Palsy

I had posterior decompression surgery at C4 - C6. After surgery, I developed C5 Palsy in both arms. Both arms are basically paralyzed.

Doctors say that in 70 % of cases, the function is regained, but I am afraid that mine is more severe than most cases and I will not get it back. All the doctors say that mine is the worst they have seen (both arms and complete inability to use arms).

One arm has started to regain movement, but the other arm is still completely paralyzed and has not improved ay all.

Has anyone else had this condition and can you share your experience (how long it took to get use back and how gradual was the recovery)?
