    He's been off for the entire month of January and the last couple of weeks has been spent waiting on the insurance company to approve his surgery. It FINALLY came through! He will have it on the 14th and should be home after a couple of days. I'm so glad he's finally going to get this fixed. It's been giving him problems for years and this last bout has been excruciating for him. I'll be sure to update after the surgery.

    What is he having done? How long is his recovery period expected to be?

    I wish him a wonderful surgeon and a speedy and full recovery. Back/neck surgeries are scary.

    He's having two discs fused. You should see his MRI...OMG. I don't even really know what I'm looking at half the time with those things but even I could see it looked awful. I don't know how he's managed to stand upright. Recovery is expected to be 4-6 weeks although he's probably going to try to cut that down.....uh huh....we'll see how well that works for him. :slap:
