I had my 3 month x ray and exam with the surgeon's assistant last week and she said all looked great and released me from their care. No more check ups or xrays unless I have problems. Tonight I received, via the health portal, the "official" results of my xray from the surgeon. It said that I have a screw loose at C7 and some movement with the plate when flexing my neck. Is this going to be a problem?!? Does it need to be monitored? I have sent an email to my surgeon asking him questions. Has anyone else had Loose screws or plate movement when flexing your neck? My acdf was C4 -7. I have NO pain and great range of motion. I cannot even tell I ever had surgery at this point. The assistant basically said if I never had pain or numbness then all is well.
