myelopathy from hardware failure?

Wondering if anyone else has experienced myelopathy (weakness upper and lower body) from failed hardware problems? Had a cervical fusion 6 yrs ago c5-c7. 3 screws in fusion plate appear to be loose. 2 Neurosurgeons I've been to don't agree this is the cause. MRI of spine looks fine otherwise.
