Honestly to evaluate this problem we need to see a post operative x ray,so we can view the situation of the vertebrae and the surgery ,commonly patient can have symptoms after fusion operations due to formation of adhesions in sites of surgery, and mechanical changes,meanwhile your symptoms are not just normal post operative symptoms specifically the legs symptoms as they may indicate problem with the surgery itself ..
I recommend checking an orthopedic surgeon and an xray..
Later ,,physiotherapy will help you overcome most of these symptoms.

You are experiencing symptoms of pressure on your spinal cord it can be directly due to fusion or from calcification, I recommend another MRI scan to identify which of them is the reason
Good Luck

As my colleagues kindly said , besides, u need to do full check up investigation as well to figure out what’s going on…

out of 7 cervical discs,3 are fused.
so naturally some amount of stiffness is expected leading to added pressure symptoms around the fused area.
other symptoms related to heart seem to be out of anxiety.
you need to de-stress yourself.
yoga and meditation will help.
foe spine related problems,spine muscle strengthening exercises will help.


Thanks for the query..

Well, there seems that still there is some nerve impingement even post surgery leading to lingering symptoms..

So it will be better to consult a Neurosurgeon and get evaluated and an MRI scan can help..

Medication, physiotherapy and accupuncture can help..
