Data Entry Job – SCAM!
We are aware that someone out there is using our CEO’s name and our company name to “recruit” people for a data entry job. It is a fake. Please do not give them any of your personal information. We are not now, nor have we ever, had data entry positions available.
compliations after surgery
I am new to this form. I had surgery 2 months ago for basilar impression(my c-2 pushes up into the space for the brain stem and my spinal cord drapes over the c-2). They fused my skull base to my c-3. My c-1 dorsal portion was fractured and had been removed in an earlier surgery. The c-2 is in the incorrect position, so the fusion was from the skull to the c-3. I really have done well. I was out of the hospital in 5 days. Off pain meds in 4 weeks and back to work in 4 weeks. I have had some complication though, my head pulls to one side and I have trouble with swallowing, singing(I'm a music teacher) and talking. I have been also having trouble opening my mouth very wide and an occasional episode of vertigo. It doesn't keep me from working, but has anyone else had these problems? My surgery was posterior and with instrumentation.
