After about a year I started having a lot of neck, and throat
pain along with hoarsness, painful swallowing and breathing problems
. My most recent MRI shows that the plate is impinging on my esophogas. I have a lot of pain in the front of my neck as well. Especiall if I look up. It feels like something is going to pierce through my throat. I have an appointment with a Neurosurgeon next week and am wondering what to expect. What kind of alternatives might I expect to correct this issue?
