I will update....Feb 07 had a revision surgery, corpectomy and fused C4-C7....I'm having new pain, left shoulder, arm and now wrist into my thumb. Had an xray in April at the pcp office and was told that I am fused. I do have denervation at C5C6 but this pain is new and I am scared. What could it be? I don't see my surgeon until October. Hardware problems? Disc above or below fusion? I was told by my pcp in April that an MRI was out as it would not be a clear pic with all the hardware. What kind of test do they do if you can't do an MRI??
