x rays showed subluxations

I have had 3 x rays since my surgery ( posterior decompression and fusion C-3 thru C-7 on 3-3-15). The 1st one on 3-13. 2nd one on 4-23 and the last one on 7-24. Before I had my surgery I had no Subluxations. The x ray on 3-13 said I had a 1 mm subluxation on C-3-C-7. The one on 4-23 showed the same. But the one that I had last week showed up to a 2 mm subluxation on 3 of my vertebrae and 3 mm subluxation on 2 vertebrae I had fused. It also showed C-7 T-1 and T-1 T-2 was severely degenerated which did not show on the last 2 x rays. I mentioned in my last post that my pain down my arm has returned and the pain between my shoulder blades and neck has gotten worse. I am going for another MRI on 8-3. I have read on here that some people has had more than one surgery. I really hope that's not my case. I'm still trying to recover from this surgery. If anyone reads this and this has happened to you, I really would love to hear from you. I am really having a miserable time with all this pain. I would like to feel "normal" again, if there really is such a thing after this kind of surgery.....I'm just wondering if I started PT too early...1 week post op... My husband thinks I did. How long did you wait til you started PT?
