New to this site just today. I am 3 weeks post-op cervical fusion on 4,5 and 6. I have terrible pain from my c7 all the way to the end of my shoulder in the muscular part between shoulder blade and scapula. Pain feels like white hot searing pain. My surgeon said he has done over 2000 of these proceedures and this is the first time anyone has "complained" of pain. I noticed several people on this site had posted similar symptoms. Has anyone ever had a cause or cure for this pain?
