I returned home from hospital on monday after having my fusion staged, so I had one operation and then spent a week of bed rest and then had the second operation and after another week was able to return home.
My curve improved from 64 to 16 degrees.
In hospital I never really had that much pain as it was well controlled by the drugs by after 3 days at home I have now got a pain in the area around the shoulder blades. When I try to get up from bed or off a sofa it often causes agonising pain that causes me to shout out and I was wondering whether anyone knew what this pain might be or how long it may last?
