March 30 was the 1 year anniversary of my C6C7 ACDF. After surgery numbness eventually went away and arm pain was more tolerable for about 8 months.Surg ordered MR that showed no significant stenosis. Study limited from acdf hardware artifacts. Had emg which reveals C7 damage / radiculopathy. Last week had cervical epidural that provided relief for about 4 hours of good relief. Next epidural scheduled for next week. Going out of my mind. Shoulder and arm is absolutely killing me. I'm only 24 years old. Advice please. Has anyone ever experienced this.
