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.
Went in for acdf, left with something else.
Just had my follow-up with my doctor. Had a c4-5, c6-7 discectomy. I was suppose to have fusion done as well as have my old plate taken out, but excessive bone growth made it a difficult job (5 hours). Weighing risk against benefit he left in the old plate and put in artificial discs.
I came out of surgery with immediate positive results. I got the feeling back in my hands and any numbness went with it. Shoot I did not even bleed after this. Other than a 2 day bout with severe charlie horse like cramps it has been a wonderful recovery. I cannot do any heavy lifting but I can drive and do not need to wear that anxiety inducing collar any longer.
Again it comes down to wear you have your surgery done. I drove a little further than last time and it made all the difference. Boston traffic, so be it.
