Got my neck muscles fixed up. Gotta wait a bit for them to heal to be sure everything worked, but they're as fixed as they'll get. Wanted the surgery done awake, but the doc decided to knock me out without mentioning it. I think I fell asleep in the OR the old fashioned way (everyone was getting stuff set up and waiting on parts after I was in the operating bed, sitting there comfy with nothing to do and a sizeable sleep deficit), and then woke up in the recovery room and was slightly grumpy about it. Was actually looking forward to being awake for the surgery.
Now, unless I have some kind of horrible accident that requires some fixing, I should be good for a good long while. Also, outpatient procedures are nice
