Okay I made it with a couple of glitches. 7 day hospital stay somekind of infection but today was last day of 10 round of 2 antibiotics. Didn't seem to give me enough pain meds to control but I am dealing with it. So glad behind me and family has been keeping close guard. PT comes 2x weekly. Same with nurse. I'm sure my insurance co loves me. Have Bon stimulator on 24/7 and I'm praying I fuse. Will keep you posted on recovery,. Collar a little bothersome but need on for 3months. Thanks for list found very useful.
