Thanks Pea,

Have "before" photos and will wait some time until after the operation and recuperation to take "after" pics and X-rays, and then post a few.

I'm tracking, in addition to information about the obvious physical struggle that a person going into an operation is facing, aspects of the "mental" challenge.

I realized this more and more as I looked at the process and communicated it to friends and loved ones, who are obviously concerned and even alarmed. I'm quite calm and look forward to it, bearing in mind that its going to be an uphill battle.
