Thanks Turbo - I am getting a "ladder fusion" - only 2 vertebrae, and I expect to be in the cervical brace for 2 weeks then a magnetic collar for another 2 weeks.
Only problem I am told is I am gonna be a "Happy FROG" for 1-2 days post-op. When I get home Friday I have a desktop setup to accommodate the brace, so I will keep you all posted!
