I had something like neck fusion

I had problems with I think it was my C6. My discs had actually compressed. What they did was they removed the back part of the discs and then put a piece of donor bone in between the discs to separate to the appropriate distance. They then put a metal plate with screws to hold into place so that is could fuse all by itself. That was almost 2 years ago and I haven’t had any problems once I recovered from the surgery. The problem I had pre-surgery was actually severe pain in my back between my shoulder blades causing problems using espcially my left arm because it hurt so much.
