saturday i fell on my back at the at the people 1st confrence in sacramento california I had to go back to the hospital where i had my scoliosis surgery at uc davis medical center.
They took a load of x-rays. After that they took me back to the ER. So I can wait for some of the orthopedic spine surgery residents. Then after i meet then one of them said i may need a CT scan done in the morning. After I when Upstairs to the 14th orthopedic floor. After a stressful night on the orthopedic floor. I saw Dr Luna and a copple of the residents I met in the ER. Dr Luna Examed me the same way as one of the residents did in the ER. Dr Luna said I still have the photo of you and Dr Gupta in my camera. Then He said I looked at your x-rays and they look fine. I'm going to zoom in to take closer look at the x-rays to just make sure every thing still in place ok sweety. I said ok Dr Luna. Let Me just take this neck coller off. Then after a while later they had me walk with PT. I walked with PT. I walked around the unit 6 or 7 times. Dr Luna came back and said look like everything is in it place. I have to go back to see doctor Gupta for a follow up in two from that

I'm so sorry to hear that you fell! It's very good news that your new surgery didn't get messed up. I'll bet you feel a little off kilter with your center of balance since you are all straightened up. Be careful and get all better! ((((HUGS)))):)

Wow that must have been very scarey - that has been my biggest fear since surgery. So glad to hear everything seems good after the xrays.

Wow, so glad to hear you're fine. I'm sure you, and your family, were very worried. It really shows the hard ware is a strong as the docs say it is. I've been surprised that they don't just have everyone in a brace after surgery (and bubble wrap for that matter), but I know they say it's not necessary and you're proof. Best wishes for your continuuing recovery.
