  • Mental Health Assessment

    When I went in for my artificial disc implant, they required me to go through a mental health assessment.  I had to take a test that was about 400 questions.  I love question #259.  I mean, who doesn't like to repair door latches. HA!  Plus afterwards met with a psychologist for about an hour sessions of just really shooting the breeze.  Luckily I was in a good place mentally going in, but I know others may not be and need some guidance.   Was just curious about other people's experiences.  I gathered from mine that they wanted to make sure I had realistic expectations post surgery.  Like I wasn't going to be 100% cured and lifting cars.

    That's crazy you had to answer 400 questions! My attention span would not last that long. HAHA. I am glad they were thorough though because mental health plays such a pivotal role in our recovery.
