    Broken screws and plate backing out against my esophagus. For me it was a hard recovery, He had to break out all the old fusions of c3-c7 and redo because they never healed right because of the broken hardware. Ive heard of people that has hardware removed and feel better so it could go either way, Good luck and keep us posted
