    I think my curve is in the 55 to 65 degree range. Until August I had a lower compensatory curve of around 50 degrees too, but when Dr. Berven looked at it in August, my back looked like a question...
  2. We're all feeling what you feel and truly do know...

    We're all feeling what you feel and truly do know what you're going through. It's hard to wait, once the date is set and I agree you feel more pain and discomfort as that days lead up to your...

    Yes. Because my job is a sit down or walk around at will, I think I can get back to work fairly soon after the surgery. You're right, Gunderson did not do this type of surgery, neither did Pine...

    She probably has the same doctor that I have. He's great, but not on my insurance company's list. It seems so silly to send me so far away, when my doctor, who is an SRS doc is right here in the...
