My surgery was October 17, 2006. On October 19th I went home. I am recovering and except for taking 2 hydrocodone
and the scar on my neck, you can not tell that I had surgery. By the 20th of Oct. I was helping my wife with dishes, I drove my pick-up, and feel very well. Today is October 30th and I was raking leaves. I still take it easy, but I was blessed by having an excellent doctor.
