Hi Judy

I suppose the other side of the coin in having the WC wanting all these tests done prior to any surgery is that they are looking after your best interests and you will know for certain what levels are damaged and in need of surgery.
I have not had a Myelogram but others have and will be able to inform you of it's limitations if any.

Take care Judy

for now,

to you and yours,

Davy

Hi Judy,Debbie and ALL

Judy, you were saying that you cant wait until it's all over with and in a year it will all be a distant memory!!!

It will all be a distant memory in about a week to two weeks after your op, honestly
You will have the collar as a reminder tho, but due to not having titanium plate it is a must for you.

You have been given some very sound advice and know this, we are ALL with you and will be praying for you throughout it all and like others have said, we will be waiting on you to tell us you were wondering what all the fuss was about and all the needless worry.

Take it easy and relax, you WILL be fine, it really is a very easy and successful op for the surgeons of today, myself and coutless others are testiment to that.
Stemitil is a good anti-nausia drug and can be give prior to op..

Take care and God Bless,

for now,

to ALL,

Davy
