If you’re into this sort of thing–and I have at least two friends who are–check out the link I added to the medical information section in the margin of my blog here to the BBC’s posting on youtube of a surgery similar to mine (at least from the standpoint of planting the titanium). I looked at about twenty seconds, until they were holding up and bending the rod to go into the spine and decided I’d need a margarita or two to check out any more of it.
Rhunette, Patrice . . . enjoy. This one’s for you. You can write me about it LOL.
