I wanted to write an open letter DC to discuss the outcome of my surgery and say thanks.
First, I am still recovering from the surgery, but I am making good progress. While I still have considerable surgical pain, the operation appears to have been extremely successful at stopping the pain I was having prior to surgery. Additionally, I have not lost any sensation or motor functioning. In other words, the operation appears to have been a complete success. Clearly it is early in the process and things may change any time, but I am extremely encouraged thus far.
Second, I wanted to thank DC as a whole. I have received countless messages in a variety of forms wishing me success with the operation, good health, emotional support and numerous other good wishes. I really appreciate all the kindness and support everyone has shown me. It's been an emotionally and physically difficult time and the support and good wishes I received from everyone really helped.
