Hi Joan and KDB,

I'm doing reasonably well, considering. I seem to have good days and bad, but the bad days are not nearly as painful as before surgery. Some days I can get by without any medication; other days not.

My range of motion is good (not what it used to be, obviously, but not as limited as I expected). I can swallow without difficulty, but still can't lift anything heavy without pain. Given that I only have three discs in my neck, I probably will always have to take that into consideration.

My scar (anterior) is healing beautifully! This time, my surgeon used that new "super glue" to close the incision, and it is a work of art.

Since I am only 10 1/2 weeks post-op, I realize I am still very much in the healing phase. (Doc said 3-9 months for a four-level fusion.) So I have nothing but optimism for a successful outcome.

Thanks very much for your concern,
