Hi, I had my acdf at level c5-6 about 5 months ago. I am still having a pinching type pain in my neck and shoulder, upper back pain, and some numbness and tingling in arm/hand. My doctor had an mri done and said all the hardware is in the right spot still and they saw nothing new. I know from looking around that there are plenty of people who still have problems well after the surgery but he is treating me as if this is extremely rare and he is surprised.
Whats the deal? Could anyone who has had an acdf and comes across this let me know how they are feeling and how long ago they had it. Thank you very much, Dan
