Pain in right side of neck and shoulder after posterior level 5 cervical fusion

10 weeks ago I have fusion C3-7. I have titanium rods and pins. Faithfully wore the rigid collar for 6 weeks, then went o soft collar which I wore all the time until last week and a half. My right shoulder is killing me and pain extends to the right side of my neck. This started when I stopped wearing the soft collar which my doctor said I could do. I have been emailing my doctor daily telling him this was concerning me. Today I put the collar back on and shoulder does not hurt as bad. I have only taken Tylenol. Narcotic pain pills don't work for me. Anyone have this experience? Any feedback? I am afraid this is a permanent condition.
