MRI validated radiating pain symptoms on left side from neck, shoulders, and chest region,with stabbing spasms in the shoulder blade. MRI states moderate bone spur 40-50% impingement on the left foramen. I had ACDF on C 5-6, 2010.My understanding is of course everyone has different experiences, but it is rather common to have second surgery. I am in constant pain, over the last several months. My question is ..doesn't the bone spur grow . Continuing pain and worsening of the condition should be anticipated, right..Unless the spur is removed. Your feedback is appreciated
