You did not give enough info for a correct response. What surgery did you have and how long have you had the pain ? A solitary brightness at T1 spine may or may not be significant but its interpretation requires medical history. A lesion at T1 can cause lower neck and arm pain. You may need to be evaluated by a neurologist or a spine orthopedist if the arm pain has persisted for weeks. Take care!
