Default Cervical Hardware Removed

3 days ago I had my hardware removed from C5/6 disc fusion back in 2012. It was anterior and was affecting my esophagus. The doctor said the fusion should be good enough to remove the hardware. So far the obvious really sore throat as my esophagus was stuck on the hardware and scar tissue from 1st surgery. I suppose time will tell. I just wanted to know of anyone who has gone through this. Hopefully the fusion holds without the hardware, I do feel relief with it removed. Any helpful info with experience, please let me know. Thank you!

No helpful experience to offer, Checker, but it's certainly good news that you've found a way to get rid of some problems. It's sad that you've had to go through this as a result of surgery.
