I'm futuring which is very bad practice; and i am not really worried or scared. I counted on the best case scenario which is also very bad practice and now i am unreasonably frustrated and pissed. I had my neck x-rayed on Tuesday. The surgeon is out of town but the nurse told me that the condition of my neck has not changed, which may mean that the healing process has stopped and i must continue to wear the cervical collar. For how long? I will be given a still unspecified consultation appointment next week. Wish me luck.
