Hi again. I should have checked the forum postings before replying. I had received an email from Karen (golfnut) - thanks Karen - telling me she had seen your posting. We are flying in Tues. from Sarasota, Fl. We fly to Charlotte & then to St. Louis. We will be staying @ the Parkway. I am 65 & had a 90 & 95 degree curve. Hope we can connect.

I would like to meet you also. I will be 69 this fall. I had a 68 degree lumbar curve with a lot of rotation. We will be flying from Columbia ,SC through Charlotte also and when we arrive in St. Louis will go to have a treadmill test at 2:00pm and then x-rays.(you can show up for your x-rays the day before your appointment if you wish) we are staying at the Parkridge Hotel also. I have a 9:00 appointment with Lenke, although he will be backed up by then. We will leave for the airport Wed. Around 2:00 to fly home. I am 4'11" tall and have short brown hair and will probably be wearing black pants and a black and white top. Hope to see you. Jane

We're back from St. Louis. My visit went very well. We were able to meet Shari and her husband and went to dinner with them Tuesday night. She seems to be doing amazingly well for just 3 months out. Dr. Lenke said he saw signs of fusion in my spine. He said I would not have to return until year 5 if I have x-rays taken locally next year and the following year and send them to him. I am experiencing trochanteric bursitis in my left hip so he had his physical therapist show me some exercises to do. I have had this hip injected with steroids since May but without good results. I am having to cut back on my walking some because of this hip pain but am continuing strength training with my trainer twice a week.

hi jane
i am surprised to read about the bursitis since you had fusion...

i have been told that the bursitis in my left hip is caused by
uneven loading of spine due to my scoliosis...i have not had
surgery, though it has been recommended to me by every
scoli surgeon i have seen....
i have 41 T and 64 L curves, with arthritis, listhesis, spinal
stenosis, etc...

i hope you feel better soon...

jess...and Sparky

I am glad you got a good report. I met Shari in Sarasota before her surgery and at the Parkview Hotel after her surgery. That's so nice that you got to meet each other.
