    Round two...

    Hi everyone. Just thought I'd give you all a quick update on my situation. As some of you may remember I've had some back/neck issues over the past year. At home, recovering... and Failed surgery. Well very early on the 28th I went back in for a second surgery. This time I had a posterior cervical fusion to replace the graft between C6 and C7. I was released late yesterday after the surgeon said the x-rays looked good. Let's see how this one goes.

    A1C, I have to go in on Jan 7th for the same deal the doc said he has to fuse a whole bunch of disks so I feel your pain. I am down to barely walking and having to use a cane I am so tired of not being able to get out and do anything I really don't care what they have to do just so its fixed. After the Cancer surgery I had 3 years ago I don't think anything could be worse. Good luck to you and keep me posted

    Prayers sent for you!!! I just had my L3, L4 and L5 discs decompressed and the bones cut away, their maximum amount, to clear space the pinched nerves on both sides, so I know what's coming for you... Take care...

    Hey guy, had a failed surgery with a plate in my wrist this year, all good the second time around. I'll have you and your back in my prayers.

    Wishing you a speedy recovery with positive results...
    Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.

    Keep a positive out look. My prayers are with you.
