Today, Dr. Vien said he is very pleased with the outcome of his surgery. The x-ray showed more bone growth! Dad is having a little stinging pain in his back which Dr. Vien said is caused by scar tissue from the surgery. That should resolve by massaging the area. The pain doctor had recommended an epidural to help with his back pain. Dr. Vien didn’t agree...he said that there’s too much risk for infection. If dad were to get an infection from the epidural Dr. Vien would have to remove all the hardware from his back. He doesn’t have to go back to Dr. Vien unless he starts having problems. We are so glad surgery was successful and everything is healing well! 😊
We highly recommend Dr. Vien and Reid hospital! Everyone has been amazing!
