Cam, our 17 you young lady who had adolescent idiopathic scoliosis surgery with us 3 days ago was feeling much better this morning at Duke Raleigh Hospital after getting over some stomach pains and some lingering nausea. She felt really good this morning, and I got a chance to sit down with her and her mom Gina, who is a nurse and go over some discharge planning and sharing together.
Gina shares her "mom story" about how she struggle a bit with the decision for scoliosis surgery for her daughter. The YouTube video also gives her a chance to thank the Hey Clinic and Duke Raleigh Hospital staff as well as talk about our new Twitter Feed communication during surgery -- a Hey Clinic first on Saturday!
Here in this picture, Cam is standing up straight next to me -- about 2 inches taller than when she came in. She had some kyphosis as well as scoliosis that we were able to correct.
You can tell that she is fired up and ready to go home this morning, three days after her scoliosis surgery, cleared by physical and occupational therapy
Get well soon, Cam! You look great!!
Have a great Christmas.
Dr. Lloyd Hey
