Patient Comments (1)
San |
Very impressive first meeting with him. He had examined my recent MRI and agreed with my desire to stop wearing a spinal brace which I had been using for 15 months because of prostate cancer spread to my spinal cord (pain free). A one week period to wean me away from the spinal brace seemed reasonable (wear it on alternate days). Previously there was a six day period when I was using my wheelchair without the spinal brace before I was told by medical personnel to start using it again.
