    Hi and welcome I just had an ACDF C5-6 July 10, 2012 so this will be short. My neck pain started in 2006 and by 2008 it was pretty bad. I was at the point where surgery was only option, the surgeon said my cervical disc was worse then MRI from April 2012. Have you seen a neurologist yet, you could start there. You mentioned you were on fentanyl patch so I assume you have been to a pain management Dr. Talk to your primary and get some MRI done or other test to find cause. Everyone here knows the pain you feel, some do great from surgery and others ok or not good. If you have a bone impinging on you spinal cord or nerve roots you should find cause as quick as you can. Some people have permanent nerve damage and pain from cord or nerves being impinged for too long. Sorry cant write more as neck is hurting and last pain med is kicking in and am getting tired. Keep looking throughout the forums and don't give up, a lot of good people use this forum. God Bless, Joe
