I had a cervical fusion in 2008 I have a metal plate in my neck 3 plastic disc's. I do understand nerve pain and the zaps of pain from my jaw through my neck into shoulders my arms and hands. Also have numbness in my arms and hands. Cervical fusion surgery cuts off the nerves root or basically kills them they have no where to go. having nerve damage is so painful I have throbbing constantly in my neck and a headache 24/7. There is nothing you can do for nerve pain like cutting off a electric wire and watching the electric fizzle out and die. Zaps of nerve pain these nerves have no where to travel through the normal path of the spinal cord. I have vocal cord damage as well. Yes I am a mess. Pain pills do not help with nerve pain. My surgeon doesn't care. My quality of life is poor to say the least.
