Re: Differing Opinions On Post-Op Bracing!
Doc's will always differ, just like mine did not brace following any of my surgeries, including the 10 level fusion. He instructs on not bending, etc., but said bracing would weaken the muscles and we didn't need that.
Guess as long as there are different ways of doing surgery such as the 360 vs one entry like I had, there will be differences in the way all other areas of medicine are practiced, but that's good. We as individuals are so different, and each of our bodies respond so differently to the same medications, the same surgery, scarring, etc., that it is good that there is more than one way to get a good result. Does make it a challenge when we are selecting the doc and their approach that we feel will work best for us, but aren't you glad that we can?
Hope your recovery is going great.
