I had surgery on my neck ACDF levels c5/c6 and c6/c7 March 21, 2008. I am still having pain in the neck and shoulders. I also had shoulder surgery in Aug. 2008. Now I have been told I have frozen shoulder
. I went to see my NS to see if some of the problems could still be coming from the neck. I asked if we could do a MRI. NS said he would hate to put me through a MRI? Why? The last neck MRI I had was March 2007. My PT believes some of the pain is coming from c4/c5 and c7/c8. I don't understand what the NS is saying. Could there be problems having a plate in my neck and a MRI? I just feel I need to know that everything is ok in there, and nothing more is starting. What other kind of test can they do to make sure? I am just so tired of being sore. I thought once the neck surgery was done, I would be on my way to recovery. Here I am 2 years after the injury, 2 surgeries later. Still not able to work... Sorry about the poor me, just needed to vent some here.
