    Please check with your surgeon's office before you get into a bathtub. Many surgeons restrict patients from this activity during the early recovery period.

    I suspect she misstated or you misunderstood. IV pain meds are used at least until it's appropriate for the patient to take oral meds (which is typically at least a few days).

    If your fusion is solid (and there's no reason to believe it's not), there's nothing anyone can do to cause harm to the fusion or implants.

    Hi Ana...

    I'm surprised at your surgeon's opinion. Your fusion stops at L2, and you have herniated discs at L3-4, L4-5, & L5-S1. Your pain could potentially be from the herniated discs. You...

    I would say the top 3 are:

    Columbia
    Wash U
    UCSF

    There are dozens of others, however, that also have good programs. For example:

    Norton
    Hospital for Special Surgery

    I'd like to remind folks that this is a scoliosis forum. While the virus is something to consider for those planning surgery, I want to ensure that threads don't get hijacked.

    Thanks.

    For the record, I put the form on UCSF stationery, but it was actually created by myself, mostly from my own experience and tips I got on the original scoliosis forum.
