This is the first time I've mentioned it but I'm going into hospital on Wednesday to have spinal surgery and although I've managed to get 'in a zone' up until now, I am starting to get nervous. One of my vertebrae is impinging on my spinal cord in my neck which is being removed and they are also having to make my neck more stable by inserting wires etc which have to be attached to my skull which means I am going to lose movement which I will have to get used to. I am trying to be brave and positive but my mind is working overtime on what changes I may have to deal with afterward. I know I have an excellent surgeon but can't help worrying that when I wake up something won't be moving as it should. Thanks for listening. Pat x
