Going under the knife again tomorrow! After the wreck in May they did a MRI of my neck and they x-rayed my shoulder. They did the neck surgery as soon as they could and put a titanium plate in my neck with six screws in it. My doctor told me the pain in my shoulder was from arthritis! I told him he was wrong and insisted on another MRI! Sure enough, four tears in my shoulder. I got lucky and someone cancelled so I can get in this year while all of my deductibles are already paid! So, you guys keep your fingers crossed for me and I'll sure appreciate it! Thanks LD!

This is two different titanium plates. The bottom one was from my buddy rolling his truck when we were going hunting 15 years ago! The top one is from this year!

Good luck with the tear repairs L Dog.

Are they partial or complete tears? How they gonna fix any partial tears?

That's some impressive neck hardware. I've got a plate and screws in my neck, but nothing like that.

Good luck. Looks like with one's eventual passing, one should be refined as opposed to cremation.

Wow! Hoping that your surgeon’s are at the very top of their game, and may the after surgery pain be minimal and you have a great recovery! memtb

Should have just shaken it off and should not have gone to the hospital.
