    6 year appt report

    Hey everyone I just had my 6 year follow up. we got to uc Davis a hour and 40 minutes early. I had to fill out paperwork fun not. Had my x-rays taken. The X-ray thing scared the living day lights out of me. After the X-rays I went back to the waiting room. My name was called. I had my vitals taken. I follow the nurse to a room. I waited for a while. A resident Dr came in. He said his name was Dr Taylor. He it up my x-rays. He examined me. He said everything looks good. He asks if I had any questions. I said no. He then said ok let me go get the boss. I though ok that was funny. Then he went to get Dr javidan. A few minutes my new Dr and his resident came in. He looked at my back and x-rays. He said everything looks good I go back in 4 to 6 years

    Good news on your report!

    Would you call your mild pain a gripping sensation up high? You know, the bear traps...

    Yeah, years ago mine looked a bit young which had me concerned.

    I had to weigh out the younger “newly trained” vs the older “very experienced” surgeon.....so I had a variety of ages actually, and my vascular surgeon was the elder “MASH” type of guy who wasn’t afraid of anything.

    For surgery, the more the merrier....a structured rehearsed team.
