    Yes, speaking of all those rods. It would be really interesting to see x-rays of your fusion now if you're willing to share. If not, that's okay. Just get better!

    I am having my broken rod revision on Friday, and I will be getting two additional, shorter rods added that will span the areas with pseudoarthrosis. I am encouraged by how well you are doing, since my surgery will be similar.

    Keep up the good work, and keep us posted about your recovery.
    Good luck Gayle with your surgery on Friday. That's interesting that you are having the additional rods too. I had not heard of this before me. I know you will fly through your surgery ;-)
