January 14, 2006

Dear Dr. Schiffer and Michael:

I just wanted to let you know that, as I have recently passed my 2-year anniversary of my C4-5 and C5-6 CED, I am doing extremely well. It seems that every day brings more and more improvement. Although I will never be the same as I was prior to the herniations, I believe that I am functioning at the very best I can be and I am extremely pleased. I feel that it was a blessing that I was able to find you to do the surgery and I am so happy that I chose the CED procedure instead of a fusion.

Currently, I'm back at work and working way too many hours (if you ask my husband). I am able to walk without shoulder and neck discomfort on the treadmill 1-2 miles 2-3 times/week. I have almost full range of motion in my neck (I can turn my neck to see behind me when I back up the car). And no one knows that I had neck surgery unless I tell them about it. I only wish that other physicians would realize the importance of this important surgical option and refer more patients for the procedure.

This fall, my husband, Bob, and I took our Harleys and we rode all the way to Branson, Missouri and back! All total was 5,500 miles! Other than some minor muscle spasms in my shoulder, I did fine. And the spasms weren't anything that a little rest and a massage couldn't help. Attached are a couple of pictures that we took while on the road.

I want to thank you, again, for returning me to as near as normal functioning as possible, so that I could get back on my bike and ride.

Claudia Coats, RNC
