Everyone here can see why we all have different results because we are all so very different. I stared at the inside of a spine for a long time, studying the nerves, the veins, the structure...We all have different criss crosses of nerves and this exhibit definitely is a must see. Totally amazing but pretty gory.

Eddie,
That is awesome. A friend (Melissa, from the forum) saw the exhibit soon after she had her 2 level fusion - I believe it was in Philadelphia then. She was amazed also. Where did you go to see it?

It is kind of gory looking, but it would be interesting to see. Looking at that makes it a little more understandable why they can't figure out what is wrong with me. I guess our bodies are even more complex than I thought.

The scientist in me found the links interesting. I certainly don't want to volunteer to be a model at least anytime soon. The link for a body rejuventation sweepstakes make me chuckle. We are definitely complex beings.

I saw it in Phily when I was in town for my IME. Each body was different in some way like one would have nothing but the entire vascular system, and another would have the entire nervous system. The one I liked the best was when they took each disc out 3/4 of the way so I could see the annulus and everything inside each disc, plus the disc itself.
Just the crisscross of nerves & veins was enough to make my head spin. But I loved it!
My Sweety said that if this was our first date, she would have broke up with me! Luckily for me she loves me already...
