Has anyone had shoulder pain after ACDF. I am over 1 year post op and it feels as if someone has dropped a brick on my shoulder. I have pain at the top of my shoulder (the boney part that sticks up) and of course my neck and down through my shoulder blades. I have been patiently recovering and doing PT but I am now getting frustrated. I had planned on being 100% by now. I can barely made it through the day without having to take a break and get off my feet to try and get some relief. However, laying down usually causes more pain and numbness through my arms, hands and fingers. I feel like a whiner!
