Thanks for starting this, WhyNot. Go you, and all of you here! Yes, even Smeghead.
Okay, I’ll share. 4 weeks ago I had major surgery to correct something I’d been suffering from since 2004. I found an excellent and very experienced neurosurgeon in Erie PA (I live in Northern California). I’m fortunate to have the means to travel there for this procedure. Stanford, UCSF and UC Davis are within easy drive distances from my home, and even UCLA and UCSD aren’t all that far, but none of the neurosurgeons there have the experience this guy does in Erie.
My visit and procedure went very well. The moment I first ‘came to’ after surgery the problem was completely gone, and it hasn’t recurred and isn’t expected to! I’m currently at home resting and recuperating, on medical leave from work. My recovery has gone very well, very quickly, and I will go back to work on Monday.
I feel great, and this is the best I’ve felt since the onset of this disease. I cannot thank Dr. Raymond Sekula and his team enough!
Each of my todays is the first day of the rest of my life.
