Hi, new here. In October I had a fusion done consisting of C4-C6. Some of the issues of the operation like swallowing, constant feeling of pressure on my trachea, coughing well the whole nine yards. They are just now beginning to go away so now I'm at least optimistic about all that going away. It's been almost 10 months now. The real problem is the plate that was installed has the bottom 2 screws in the disc between C6 and C7. I have been to four different dr's only one offered to remove the plate. They all said they would leave the plate. So now the Disc between 5 and 6 is collapsing and between 6 and 7 is now bone on bone with the two screws in the front of the disc. My Doc that operated said the plate shifted, however I have a CT scan from the first week of the operation and I can clearly see both screws in the disc. So does anyone have any suggestions as to what the next best step would be.?
