Someone else's success story

Today I went to get my hair cut. I sat down in the chair and saw my stylist had an identical scar to mine except it was fresh. I asked her.... Did you have neck surgery!? She said yes, a 3 level fusion one month ago.

Long story short, she had a fusion one month ago, went back to work after 2 weeks, never felt better and pretty much has no pain.

I couldn't believe it! Made me feel horrible but at least someone had a very successful surgery.

    People are so very different
    No two medical situations are alike
    No two fine tune surgical procedure is alike
    No two surgeons are alike

    So, we respond and recover from surgery based on OUR
    time schedule, not another.

    You will get there, trust me
