      Very positive, but like Pellicle, I'd prefer to keep my own.
      Never stand afar and view with fear and trembling that which lies in your way. Face it boldly and see how very small it is, after all.

          Not only is it "cool" looking, but I'm sure there are patients for whom it would be a huge benefit.

          We had a very active member here some years ago (GregA) who needed to have his sternum removed due to some complication from heart surgery. He did OK without it, but life was challenging for him. This would possibly have made his life far more normal again.

            Yes I recall. There may be some here yet.

            I myself am not out of the woods yet, but I would hope it is not in my future

              I, too, hope you can dodge this bullet, mate.
