    Doreen, sending you healing wishes. I broke 4 rods and the replacement was so much less traumatic than the initial fix. You are in great shape, so you will do well.

    Revision OK?

    Hi, Doreen. I've been thinking of you & I hope that your revision surgery went OK and that you are recovering well.

    If you get a chance, let us all know how you are doing.

    I believe I did see Doreen in the waiting room at Dr. Lenkes office in NYC while I was there on my Feb. 21st visit. I was leaving out with my husband and think it was her sitting in the waiting room. I read some of here Bionic Blog and remember her picture from that. I would have spoke but I was pretty upset leaving after hearing about surgery.
