Occasional Neuro Symptoms 1-Year after Cervical Fusion

Was wondering if anyone experienced this. Had c5-6 acdf 1 year ago after sports injury. Really good NS, said it was a textbook surgery, MRI before surgery showed no issues and good stability at all other levels. Since the surgery, I occasionally experience tingling and burning in both shoulders, sometimes down into hands, before surgery was just on one side. Shooting pains in neck every once in a while, more frequently last couple of months. Saw NS a month ago, he wasn't concerned and didn't want to re-scan, said it is pretty common with hardware to experience this. It is just so hard to distinguish between what is pain from the injury, what is pain from the surgery, and what is potential pain from new issues. I am in my early 30s and pretty active (golf, yardwork, elliptical and bike, etc.) but nothing too extreme. I am kind of scared that these are new issues with my other discs, but NS doesn't think that to be the case. Just looking for some input. Thanks!
