Please keep the positive vibes coming today. Have an independent medical exam this afternoon post MVA. I'm a little apprehensive at the thought but my faith will NOT be shaken and I will not be bullied by this ortho either. I have dealt with a TON from this accident. Foolishness I will NOT take. Will let him know in plain English that yes, I am still having pain and also have functional limitations after 9 months. Sorry for ranting, but I have already had really bad experiences with Ortho docs in the past. I will prevail!

Sent me into a pretty significant flare up at this point. Had some weakness on the right side and tremendous discomfort with the straight leg raise. So we shall see what options are.

Yes! 👍 Like any other doc, they work for you. 🙏🌼

Flappys, I believe that was the first decent orthopedic assessment that I have had done since the accident. I'm actually impressed and he recommended pain medication other then Advil.
