Saw the spine doctor today. My spine is curved a bit at the top, maybe because the end of the appliance is lose. The best thing would be to watch a while and see if it stabilizes or starts to get worse. But I go on Medicare come April, and his practice won't do surgery on Medicare patients because they lose money on it. Well, I'm not getting surgery because maybe it'll get worse in the future, but the whole thing is so dumb. I asked about osteoporosis and he said I better find an endocrinologist now because I won't be able to after I hit Medicare.

Grrr.
