Hi everyone,
I have been lurking for some time now and now I feel the need to post.

I had fusion of the C 5,6 & 7 in 2007 and I thought I was in the clear. But these last few weeks I feel my old symptoms coming back. Pain in between my shoulder blades, pain shooting down my right arm and numbness in my thumb and index finger. I went to my doc and he looked at me like I was carzy, but he did schedule me for an MRI next week. I'll keep you posted on the out come.


  • I am fairly new to the site too, also did quite a bit of lurking before posting! Welcome :))) . I am very sorry to hear you have returning symptoms. I hope the MRI gives you insight as to why. The people on this forum are very supportive and knowledgable........it's a good place to be. I'm sure someone will have similar experiences or advice and support for you.

  • Welcome to our forum. I'm sorry to hear that your symptoms have started to return. I hope the MRI shows up what's happening in your neck. It's disappointing after going well for 3 years, but I hope you won't need further surgery.
