I can't type for very long but want everyone to know the surgery was a success! I have no pain in the front and expected a lot of pain in the back, but not as bad as it was. Not only the neck muscles but deep nerve pain down both arms. I am on valium neurotin, baclefen, hydrocodone and oxcycoton. Of couse it is all scheduled through out the day. Anyway over the hump and get sutures out tomorrow. I am sleeping upright in a make shift recliner and did the same in the hospital. As you can tell I am pretty out of it. This forum helped a lot and I will write more in a few days when the pain isn's as bad.

Thank you for all of the thoughts and prayers!
