My surgeon has not ordered x-rays post op other than the routine 6 week ones. I did have an mri about 4 months ago though. I find this strange that he doesn't see a need for imaging to check the bone growth or the positioning of the hardware, especially with as much work as was done.
I'm just curious of other people's experience with this. How often and which kind of imaging does your surgeon automatically do? Maybe my surgeon just feels that with as much hardware as I have in there, there is no way anything will move. I did discuss this with my physiatrist the other day and she agreed to have me do a CT Scan at the one year mark if I ask for it. But I still find it odd that it is not a routine thing to have imaging done at the 3 month, 6 month, and one year mark.
What has been your experiences?
Surviving chronic pain one day at a time, praying for a reprieve because living another 40 years like this doesn't sound too fun!
