While I was suffering with my foot, Dave was suffering with compressed discs in the neck. He had stepped over some weeds on a walk with the dog and caught his foot on some fencing and gone face down in mid-spring. He complained the next day of back pain, but it took a while to track it down to the fall, and even longer and months of unproductive physical therapy to figure out that he had compressed discs. Then he had to wait until my foot was healed enough to take care of him to go in to get his surgery.
We went to Aspen Medical for his surgery. The accommodations and the food were much better than normal hospital fare.
