Five plates in a span of 7-8 discs is a lot.... I would tend to think that a lot of her pain could be from little to no ROM(range of motion). Think about it if she was trying to turn her head & her C1-C2-C3-C4-C5-C6-C7 was totally fused then that would be a huge fight going on there.

I had a 4 level ACDF done & had 2 plates installed. I also had also had a Corpectomy/PCDF (Posterior) done at 5 levels with rods & screws inserted.

Also while researching the surgeons notes prior to the operations I found that on the posterior side there could be a plate attached to the base of the skull & rods & screws attached the bones.

I know I am just throwing some things out there.... You might want to research her Surgeons notes & MRI's to get a better understanding what operations was done.
