Default Released from Surgeons Care

Hi all, I had my 18 month check today. I should have been released on June 1st this year but as most of you know, I had that bad hip/back pain episode and therefore he didn't release me at the time. My past xrays have always been of only the fused area, but today I had a full spine done. I am happy to report that everything looks really, really good. Nice fusion, straight spine (thoracic curve corrected itself) and no hint of de-generation of levels above or below fusion. All in all, both the surgeon and i were happy with the outcome and he has now released me from his care. I can call him anytime, to ask questions or if i have any queries, but i don't need any further followup appts. I filled out my post-surgery outcome form, shook his hand and thanked him ever so much for releasing me from my pain. Words cannot express my joy. Think i will use the Guns & Roses comcert tonight as my celebration, since the whole family is going! Best wishes everyone.
