Default Re: Introduction- Surgery in 3 days

Finally got my X-rays! I had to snap these with my iPhone. So from what they told me it's about 90* down to 15*- the residual lumbar curve should spontaneously correct within a few months. My left shoulder still wants to rise up a bit- apparently that will fix itself too.
Dr. O'Brien is really pleased with my progress & actually lifted all restrictions- he said do whatever I feel I can do! That was a relief, as I've been keeping myself ramrod straight for a month (gets tiring!). The incision is looking nice too- very thin. I'll try to get some pics of that tomorrow.

Did anyone else get a bone stimulator? I have to strap on this device for 30 minutes a day that supposedly promotes bone fusion by sending out electromagnetic signals! Sounds a bit odd to me, but whatever they say
