I have two rods in my spine I can't feel one but I can feel the other rod is that normal? And when I lean back i can feel that same rod is that normal?
Just curious

Yes that might be expected if they couldn't remove most of the rotation. Was curve curve very rotated?

Kat, see if you can get the sagittal radiographs from after your surgery. This side view will show you how well the two rods line up. If all rotation was removed and you were standing exactly perpendicular to the beam then it would appear to be only one rod. Most people do not have all rotation removed and one rod will be further back than the other. That is the rod that will hit a chair back whereas the other may be far too deep to ever touch a chair back. You would only ever feel the one rod.

Ask your surgeon abut this.

Thanks I will!
Isn't it funny everytime I ask a question the next day I correct myself and boom my problem is solved 0.o

I had to de rotate myself I gues but it's only been one day so we will see how this goes...

I think this to be a normal thing..
I can feel my both rods.But 1 is more prominent than the other..
I can also feel my most of screws.But I believe that may be it is because I am so smart :)

I wouldnt worry.i could feel a screw from my old fusion that I couldnt feel before my second fusion but my surgeon says its nothing to worry about.turns out the fab correction has caused the screw to be more prominent but hey ho
