Vertebroplasty Post-Op

by on January 6, 2010

I just spoke with Dr. Chen.  She said the procedure itself went very well.  Satomi has been in recovery for the last hour.  There was no oozing of cement and she passed all post-op neuro tests (tickling her feet, etc.).  Post-Op treatment will continue for another hour.

Satomi is in pain as there are now (6) holes into her spine but that is suppose to pass in the next few days.  She is going to be admitted for observation likely just overnight.

We won’t know  how effective the procedure is until most of her localized pain has subsided-Typically this takes 48 hours.

I will update you all again after we get her into the hospital room.

    I worked with Satomi at Tustin Rehab a few years ago. I have got caught up with you all via your blog. Please tell her I am praying for her. I am praying for you also and the tremendous burden that you are bearing. You sound like you are doing a wonderful job managing “it” all. Don’t forget to ask for help.
