Greetings Dr Corenman
Last week I received a message from Eric that a two level fusion is the best approach for my disorder.
Briefly, I had my first consult w you in late October. We discussed my imagery and I was scheduled for a SNRB/diagnostic Epidural and 4 level discogram w Dr Evans.
Fantastic experience with him and his team and I left you a brief note post procedure about it was very informative and transformative.
Last week or so Eric and I began trying to connect to discuss the surgical approach and he mentioned that I was a candidate for a 2 level fusion. He mentioned that he had reviewed Dr Evans findings and am looking forward to discussing the plan w him.
As for the sacralized L5/S1 with the left L5 nerve root compression, as well as the bone on bone findings make this one of the segments that will be covered by the fusion or will you fuse the next two levels above it?
I have been doing a lot of strengthening excercises with a lot of attention to posture, gait, balance and proper mental attitude towards healing this disorder.
Ligety was truly inspiring during the Worlds as was Michaela. She made Vail and the U.S. Alpine community very proud. Travis Ganong and Jared Goldberg also had some breakout runs. The team is evolving.
My pain was completed and your office has it for your review.
Your advice right before my procedure w D Evans to concentrate on the emotional signals that go with the changes in my pain signature was excellent. I feel much more empowered knowing that the mind plays an important role in the healing process.
Looking forward w great excitement. Dr Evans mentioned you were quite busy thru end of the ski season. I take this as a sign you are busy helping a lot of people with similar problems. Keep that momentum up and I will be ready to go when you say so.
Enjoy that winter wonderland. I’m beyond feeling jealous when I hear about big snowstorms.
I have a feeling there will be snow next year ….and so on.
