Revision Surgery - Anterior versus Posterior

I had a CT with Myliagram on Good Friday and although the procedure wasn't bad the head and back aches which followed were absolutely horrible. A week later I saw my surgeon and he is now recommending a revision surgery. According to him, the bone used for the fusion has grown in such a way that it is causing compression on my radial nerve which in turn has caused all of my post op problems.

I now have to see an ENT specialist for a vocal chord evaluation and these results will help determine if my surgery will be anterior or posterior. Has anyone faced a revision surgery for c-5,c-6 and c-7? What was your experience? Has anyone had posterior revision? If so, I would greatly appreciate hearing your accounts.
