Doc visit

Well, after the doctor visit yesterday, April 24th is S-Day. Remove 2 disks in the neck, fuse 3 vertebra using titanium plates. We can rebuild him, we can make him stronger, not the 6 million dollar man but probably 30-K. I have read other's postings regarding back issues and the pros and cons of surgery, but in my case preservation of the spinal cord is necessary. If I am to continue to enjoy hunting/fishing and life then this is the current best fix. Prognosis: better than 50% chance of less pain, definately less neck up/down movement, bummer have little now, spinal cord issue over, hopefully, the right decision? Time will tell!
