2 neck surgeries in last year & half

Hi! I am new to these boards. I just wanted to see if there was anyone out there with my kind of problems? I was injured at work on 3-4-2013. I had anterior c4-5 surgery in June 2013. My neurosurgeon didn't want anything to do with me after the surgery. Told me his job was done? I was still having same issues ( loss of range of motion, severe pain going down left arm & numbness) as I had before surgery. I found a new doctor (orthopedic) and he x-rayed my neck & said it didn't fuse. So in March of 2014, I had Posterior fusion. It's now been 5 months & I'm still miserable! I am still having same issues & now new ones, too. I now have a burning/stinging pain in center of my neck. The doctor said it was probably nerve pain so he put me on neurotin. It didn't help at all so he took me off of it. He basically said there is nothing else he can do for me? He referred me to a pain clinic. I'm just wondering if anyone has gone to a pain clinic & what the outcome was? Thank you for any advice you can give me.
