Thanks for asking your NS. I was going to call and leave a msg but now I won't. It actually feels great to know that others have the same thing going on.

I'm hoping that I never have another problem with my neck even though I'm a realist and now it could happen but I'm not going to dwell on it. Life's too short to spend it thinking about things that might happen. I've run into two people who had the same surgery over 10 years ago and both are doing great. I'd like to think that's going to be me in 10 years too.
