Hi All,
I have a thoracic curve at 63 degrees and a lumbar at 62 degree. I will be having surgery soon. I know it will be within the next month or two.. just do not have the exact date as of yet. They are trying to coordinate everything; blood banking and MRI results and everything. I am 31.
Dr. Hey will be doing my surgery (He also did a spinal fusion surgery, on a scoliosis patient for the Discovery channel in 2000.)
Anyways what can I expect as far as pain and such.
And how were things when you came home after surgery?
