|Ortho Resident, my x-ray, my Doctor|
When one has a back as...well... special as mine, your doctors aren't just one-time specialists, but are people who will be in your life for quite a long time. As that is the case, it's important to have doctors that you trust and who are personally invested in your long-term care. Enter Dr. O'Brien. The thing I love best about him is that he responds to my emails if I have any questions/concerns.
Today was my 4-month post-operative checkup, and my neck (both the artificial disc and the scar) are looking good. I'm still going to take it easy when it comes to boxing (just shadow boxing) and no running on hard ground/plyo (that seems to compress my spine too much anyways).
