I'm seeing Everette Howell. He did my L5-S1 surgery and was amazing. I actually got out of bed and walked to the bathroom right when they rolled me back from the recovery room, and was walking a mile at a time on day 4. I know he's great, but getting my throat slit freaks me out. He says he actually does it as an outpatient procedure, which seems really weird to me!! What about that IV Morphine????
