Question I had ACDF and Posterior plating too !! c5c6c7 still in pain

Some of you may remember me, I had ACDF about 2 yrs ago and then in August I had another plate posterior over the same verts c5c6c7...
Still in ALOT of pain , now I am having baaaaaad headaches to go along with it, never really had the headaches thing befor..... NOW my doc wants to go back in and REMOVE the posterior plating that was put in, in August , cuz he said it may be putting pressure on my spinal cord and the only reason it was put in was because the acdf didnt fuse... but now it is fused so I could have the posterior plate taken out and it should relieve my pain. Whats the odds? My pain level has gone nothing but up since the first operation, kinda seems like hes grasping for reasons here, I dont want to be sliced open again, but I cant deal with the pain much more, percs, vicodin,cold packs, warm packs, sick of it all!!! Any insight people????? It would be muchly appreciated

I think that if I were you, I would consider a second opinion. What he has done so far hasn't been successful. I don't know if I would trust him with a third try.
