Seven years out from complex kyphosis surgery, and still standing up straight and thankful

On Friday, I also saw Tammy back in clinic with her husband.
Tammy had a very severe thoracolumbar kyphosis, that included a spinal fracture.
She was in severe pain, and was severely kyphotic, looking down at the floor, on a lot of narcotics.
Now she is doing great, off all narcotics, and working full-time as an X-Ray technician at a very busy hospital about 2 hours away.
She even says she lifts up / rolls over 500 lb patients to slide in her cassettes!
Tammy got motivated to become a radiography tech after her kyphosis surgery with us several years ago.

You look great, Tammy, and thanks for sharing your story briefly with the video today!
