Well, it'd be hard to open up more space since she has had previous plate and screw fixation at that level

One other possibility to throw into your differential is evaluating the scalene muscles. They refer pain down the thumb side of the arm/hand, and attach to your area of previous surgery, so may be scarred over. I guess a good question would be whether you had anterior or posterior entry into the neck.
