Default Going to Spain for cervicalM6

Hello All,
Hope you all had a great holiday and hopefully 2010 will bring us closer to feeling "better" than 2009. I finally made my decision to go to Spain for a Spinal Kinetics M6 @ C5/C6 onJan 27 . Huge thanks to all of you for sharing your experiences/insights-GREAT HELP in making decision. Special thanks to jss for all your help-much appreciated!

Feeling a bit anxious about surgery but wondering what "my" recovery will look like. It should be an "interesting" ride!!

neckman,

I hope your experience and results are as good as were mine. If they are, you'll feel brand new. Tell Doutsen that "Jeff and Sherri from Dallas" said "hi". Update us from Spain if that is possible.

I hope you like Estrella.

Good luck, Jeff
