After complaining for thietythree years about neck and arm pain. Biggest noticeable problem was my left shoulder stayed shrugged up even with my chin. Every since a MVA where I was thrown out of vehicle . Five fusions and thirty three years later I finally found a doctor that would listen to where I said my problem was located, which was a higher level,. It was not until after he had fused 4 5 6 7.i am now. Free of arm pain and my left shoulder completely released and dropped to th normal position. Unfortunately I developed a larger blood lot which develved under surgery area who's was done anterior ly. My neck swelled up sticking out larger than my face . I actually looked as if I had a huge goiter. I was stuck back in tne hospital and due to the pressure the clott was pushing on my assophagus, vovoicebox, and very difficulty swallowing.........."....still waiting for the lump to stop causing me to sound like I ha very bad cold and I'm losing my voice. Has anyone else here ever had a blood clott appear after surgery. Other than the surgery pain and swelling. What was accomplished after my c3-4 fusion was great I had surgery on 111-16-13 Sincerely. Cindy
