hi and welcome to the support group -

sorry you've had such a hard time with this - i've had back surgery so I don't really know what all you went thru but have seen several people who have had the head brace on -

I know before i had back surgery i had about 50 questions for the surgeon before I agreed to the surgery - and even after the surgery I had more questions - didn't matter how stupid the questions were I asked -

I hope you are doing better - I don't know if we've had any members that have had your type of surgery that have stayed with us - so please keep posting even if it's just to vent - this is a great support group and we try to help each other -

take care - Joy
