Hello Karim. Are you working with a physical therapist? After cervical fusion, damaged nerves can take up to 6 months (sometimes more) to improve. Working with a knowledgeable therapist can help to ensure a faster and more complete recovery. In the meantime, your pain can be mitigated by nerve stabilizers such as gabapentin and pregabalin.
Let me know if you have any follow up questions about any of this.
