Hi! I am new here to the site and have a question. Has anyone that has had surgery in the thoracic area for kyphoscoliosis had any problems of the kyphosis continuing to progress? I had surgery a year ago and my back between the shoulder blades seems to indent in further than it did post surgery. I have been having problems with muscle spasms from my lumbar area to my neck, giving me headaches, pain in one ear (how weird). I have intermittant shooting pains and prickly pins. Is this just muscle development causing this? I have had a bone scan and blood work done without any explanation of my pain. Dctor has no answers for us with the pain. I am to see my surgeon in April for a routine checkup. We are considering getting another opinion. Any help you could offer would be appreciated Thanks!!! :D

Great name selection! LOL Welcome to the forum.

Generally the shooting pains are nerve related and might take a little more time. As far as progression is concerned, the only way to tell is with an x-ray. Another opinion wouldn't hurt. How old are you? Age has a lot to do with things.

Thanks (on the username)! lol
I am 15. I had a short period of time post surgery with no pain. Approx 3-4 weeks post surgery. I had a deep suture pop during PT which has caused some pain. Then I had a kid pick me up and swing me around during drama. Only did muscle damage, nothing showed on a bone scan. Doctors said he doesn't know why so much pain. See ya in 4 months, maybe will be better.
