Re: just had 2 level acdf surgery on 8/14/02

Hi Leo,
Thanks for the advice.... although I am very pleased so far with my recovery, I am being exceedingly cautious with everything I do. I am in an HMO too and that may have been why it took a little while to get scheduled. I do have to say I am really happy with my HMO (Kaiser Permanente) here in Colorado -- everybody was really nice and attentive and it did not cost me one thin dime! I was very happy to find out Kaiser only uses board-certified Neurosurgeons and Anesthesiologsts.

I have heard like you have that it will be about 1 year for full recovery and I think that will be great! A year is a short period of time to insure I don't keep having these recurring herniated disc episodes. I am glad you are doing well too and will watch your posts!

Thanks,
John
