I just want to say that I reached Dr. Lenke's scheduling nurse, and she took information from me. She gave me fax numbers and addresses for these local surgeons to send my records and things to HER. She said this way they won't lay on some desk somplace and not get looked at. Her name was Naomi. And as soon as she gets what they send, another of Dr. Lenke's nurses will call me to ask some more questions. She seemed very efficiant and nice. Anyway, the ball is rolling. I so want to "thank you" guys for giving me supportive words and possitive information on Dr. Lenke. I need that right now. I have read great things about him and heard lots about him through this forum. I will have the screw taken out in a couple days. That will help the pain, I hope. Gentle Hugs to all~~Linda
