Worked for me. They are amazing. I see a couple of screws there which "appear" to be floating. I've never seen that before. What are your curve degrees now?

Worked for me too. COOL x-rays!!! Yeah - what about the floating screws? Is that really what it is??? Surely not.

The screws are put in from the front, to hold whatever was inserted there (probably femoral rings), in place.

I thought the same thing about what appears to be floating screws I asked my surgeon and he just said everything is normal so I am assuming they are supposed to be there.I had anterior surgery too so I think those screws are screwed to something.I will go see my surgeon in May and I will asked questions like what my degrees is now.I live in Bakersfield,Ca and my surgeon is in Beverly Hills,Ca which is a 3 1/2 hr.drive.

The screw goes into the pelvis, and it essentially anchors the implants.

Your surgeon will almost certainly do before and after xrays. Ask them surgeon or his office assistant, for copies.

Does everyone have them if they are fused to the pelvis?

You can also ask the radiology department. You will sign a release form and they will mail you a copy.
