Just a quick message to thank everyone for all your lovely comments when I had my op. Katy did well with coping with phone calls visitors and blogs I think, hubby didn't , but was good helping me lol!

The op seems to have gone well, I had three discs removed, spinal fusion and metal cage done. The dressing on my neck was massive, I looked like Frankenstein with a cut neck but then the dressing came off and took it off and you would hardly believe the scar is there there, the sympathy vote went right down after that ha ha. They have left the stitches in another week though.

The nurses in high dependency were amazing! I lost my voice and my legs wouldn't work the first day but they explained everything and I just wasn't worried and as they said things got back to normal after a few days. So recuperating now.

It was my birthday yesterday and I got SO spoiled, great pressies ,you can tell Katy and the boys girlfriends chose them!

So thanks again, bit hard to use computer at the moment so will blog next week,wishing u all those pain free weeks, Axx

Welcome back Allanah! Great to hear from you. I had that same neck operation with fusion and metal plate and screws 12 years ago. To this date I do not have any problems with it, no pain, no problem with arms, etc. So I feel sure you will be just as satisfied with the results.

Only little impairment is not being able to turn my head all the way to the side, but I got used to that, not a problem at all. Godd luck with recovery, enjoy the holidays, Merry Christmas to all your family! Love from across the waves, Loret xx
