    You're welcome man and I hope your surgery goes well. I know what you're going through as hell.

    Thanks man. I'm more concerned about my family. My wife lost her mom after back surgery 2 years ago. The surgery was a success, but her mom had so much wrong with her she got pneumonia, staff infection and sepsis. It affected my 8 year old daughter who ended up having to have therapy to help her cope so it's a touchy thing. I have no health issues, not overweight so my odds are pretty good, but still plays on my family's mind.

    Remind them that you're young and fit and that the metals used are specially designed for this purpose and are nonreactive. If they watch "Teen Titans" you can tell them you'll be like Cyborg. Above all remind them that you love them.

    I think you're going to be fine but you could use it as an opportunity to do a will and get your affairs in order, that's what I did. It costs about $500.

    And finally, if you change your mind on the opiates and end up using long-acting ones then be sure and keep them away from the kids. A medicine box with a simple lock is probably sufficient.
