I am curious if there are many people out there who have had a Cervical fusion (mine was C4 to C6 w/corpectomy) then a few years later have to have a laminectomy above (C3) & am about to have the C7 done some time soon. I had a bone spur grow where the union of the new bone developed. My arm pain came back and also the numbness. If so how are you doing and how painful was the 2nd laminectomy, because the C3 laminectomy was pure torture. It has made my neck pain worse! The C7 is even with shoulder blades so will my neck hurt less? any input would be great, Thanks
