11 months ago I had a fusion in my neck of 2 vertebre. A plate was put in to secure them. About 3 months after the surgery I started having alot of pain in my neck that went down between the shoulder blades and down my left arm. This pain is getting worse and is constant. It seems like I can feel little granuals in my neck whenever my neck cracks. I have taken vioxx, skelaxin,soma,flexeril,motrin,narcotics. Nothing is easing the pain. Everytime I go back to the dock, they blow it off like its nothing. I am 30 years old and I need to get this fixed. Please please help.

Shoulder Blade Pain
I, too, had surgery. For c5/6 disk herniation. I had excruciating pain in my right shoulder blade as one of my first symptoms. Mri finally showed disk herniation. This is a long story, so I will not bore you with all the details - but do not let doctors blow you off!!! Visit as many as you can until you find one that will listen. This is what I did. I saw 8 doctors before I finally found one that would listen to me an appreciate that I had lost almost all of the function of my arm and hand. You can't blow that off! Everybody's case is different, but what is constant is that the pain is life altering. Hey, i'm a teacher. If one of my students says that he or she still doesn't get it, I continue to help them. Doctors need to do the same.


Best of luck to you! Smile

I also have the same problem, for 6 years to be exact. The only thing I can say is the pain is still with me. Dr's look at me like i'm making it up. Med's don't work, they don't tell you before surgery that the out come is worse, and that you end up worse then when you went in. The problems your having are probably degenerative disc disease.. Look into it.. Good luck..

Fusing Neck Verterbre
I've been told the best way for me to go with my neck pain is a fusion on 5&6. I have heard it doesn't last and is not going to take this pain away. I found information on "The Spinal Kinetics M6 Cervical ADR". It sound like a wonderful way to handle this problem......there's just one small problem...it's in Germany and you will be gone 14 days. So, once again, no money--no cure!
