Mood: Relieved that surgery is over!

I exhaled anyway when I did the test. When I went to see Dr. LoSasso he sent it for a re-read and it came back much higher than what my local radiologist had measured it as.

If you see Dr. J, she will likely do an MRI instead of a CT. They can measure it off the MRI as well.




Modified ravitch with permanent titanium plates (on top of sternum).

I'm sorry to be a little late posting, but if you are still considering Dr. Garcia, I'm happy to help answer any questions you have. He did the Nuss on me when I was 24, and he did an amazing job. I'm really happy with the results, and actually just had a baby with the bars in and had no problems.

Wow! That's great to hear. For some reason my PM/U2U inbox isn't working. I'll drum up some questions over the next few days and get back to you!
