okay... surgery with Dr Rod Oskouian at Swedish Hospital in Seattle. He took out all the posts and the fusion to C4 from the posterior. Then he fused me from C4 to C5.
I went in Friday the 16 of July and checked out on Monday 19 of July. Quick trip, eh? MUCH better than the first time getting this Chiari thing done!!
Here's some pictures of the hardware taken out of my head.
