After ACDF in Nov 09 DH has had problems. Worst is pain and problem with right arm, pain when lifting arm, sharp stabbing pains from shoulder down to elbow with movement and even at rest. Dr did MRI of neck in Feb trying to see what it was. Nothing showed. Did another yesterday and called today to say he has a torn rotator cuff and that the cervical problem was probably masking the pain which is why he didn't feel it before the surgery. Anyone ever have problems that were hidden by their cervical problems that started giving them trouble after the surgery? If so what did you do to take care of the problem?
