I had a discectomy and fusion at C3-C4 nearly 18 months ago. There was significant improvement over the first 6-8 months then levelled off to mild pain. Over the past 6 months I have been in significant pain and am basically close to where I was prior to the surgery. I have been told previously everything looks normal.
I got a CT scan and one of the things mentioned is an incomplete fusion posteriorly at the implant.
Is that normal after a such a long period of time?
Would that cause my pain?
