Can neck range of motion improve post stenosis surgery?

I had dual cervical spinal surgery in June of 2014. I had anterior discectomy and fusion at c3/c4 and posterior foraminotomy at c6/c7. My pain is almost all gone. My neck, however, remains tight. Before surgery my range of motion on the right side was maybe 5%. Now it's maybe 60-70%. I'm hoping I can get more. Does it seem generally possible that I can? My surgeon said he hoped to get to 95% on the right side. My current specialist (new town as I moved) said it may be reaching it's max because of disc degeneration. I'd be grateful for any insight anyone can provide. thanks
