Just a quick note to say that removal of my annoying screw was as easy as promised. I was eating lunch at the hospital and then back to the hotel by 2:00 PM. Dr. Lonner even encouraged us to go out to dinner tonight (just no wine with the pain meds!) It was a little disconcerting to be doing the exact same routine again, same waiting around forever in pre-op, even had the same anesthesiologist who remembered me since I had some issues the first time. I know I'm going to have a sore butt for a while, but I think I'm going to be more comfortable in the long run. For some reason, my coming to NYC for surgery seems to create a weather crisis in my hometown area. The first time it was "snow-mageddon" in Feb. 2010, and this time we're having major flooding like we haven't seen in years. Nothing like seeing your local streets on the Weather Channel!

I am so grateful to have found this Dr. and for the great care I have received here. I proudly wear my "I love New York" tee shirt!
