4 weeks post op pain

Hello guys,

I am a 36 yr old male and I had a C6/7 ACDF procedure done 4 weeks ago.  I felt good after surgery and I thought I was recovering well.  However, my pain is back on my shoulder and forearm.  In addition, tip of my index finger is now numb and has a tingling sensation.  Prior to ACDF, I've never experienced the numbness in my finger tip.  To be more descriptive, certain movement (tilting my head back) of my head will cause more pain to the area.  Is this normal?  Can this be caused by the scar tissue? 

Thanks for your feedback...
