    How many different doctors performed your surgeries?

    Do you regret that you originally decided to have surgery? Do you feel that one surgery led to the next? Or was surgery inevitable?

    You must be home now. How does it feel?

    I just came home yesterday. It is okay, I am extremely tired but can do small things. This surgery was for a nonunion in the thoracic and my broken neck. At least the pain in the thoracic is under control and my head is in a better position.
    Do I wish it was different, the answer is yes. Every part of me wishes the car accident never happened. The broken neck made everything more difficult.
    Originally I had an orthopedic spine surgeon and scoliosis specialist. These last surgeries have been done by a neurosurgeon. One did 3 of them and one did this last one. This last surgeon is a deformity specialist at a major hospital in Chicago. These neurosurgeons are in the same office.
    This has to be the last. The surgeon said all of the hardware in the cervical was loose.
