    It's a lot of little things that all add up. And, I have to tell you that there are others who do not feel the same limitations. How inflexible we feel is based on the number of levels fused, the...

    As I think you've probably figured out, the iliac cress bone graft is taken from the iliac crest and not from the hip. I'm guessing that surgeons think people are too dense to know or look up what...

    I know I've heard from more than a few people who had an ileus, but I don't know if it's even the majority. I didn't have an ileus with either of my anterior spine surgeries (nor any of the 3-4...

    Hi...

    It depends on the patient and the procedure. If you have only posterior surgery, there is only a minimal chance that you'll end up with an ileus. At UCSF, patients are encouraged to drink...

    I agree. I've tried to get some of our docs interested. It would be a relatively easy study to do.

    Not that I need to justify anything, but I think I'm fairly qualified to talk about this. ;-) I was fused T4-L3 in 1993 and then had my fusion extended to the sacrum in 2011. I also work in a spine...

    Linda... Foraminotomy is a form of decompression. If you Google Foraminotomy +animation, you should get some videos of what's done.

    I don't know about kids, but I think most adults are put on this regimen as soon as they start swallowing food and medications. "Mush and push" is the mantra. An over-the-counter senna combined...

    As you know, I am not a doctor, and I'm certain your doctor is way better at diagnosis that I could ever be. It's possible that the problem is actually adjacent to the facet, and that you got some...

    Hi...

    I don't know, and I'm not sure anyone else does. It seems to me that it's possible that the facets are not what is causing your pain. Were the injections above, below, or within the...

    Hi Crystal...

    I'm fused T4 to the sacrum. I feel like I'm very limited, but I know others who have even longer fusions who don't feel as limited. I suspect it has to do with how limber one is in...

    Karen... I don't know how far in the future it will happen, but there will eventually be gene therapy to fix the problem, at least for those with the most common gene mutations. I hope it's in my...

    Would you mind if I moved this to the Non-Surgical forum? While it's research, I think it's great information that could be useful to people who are specifically looking for non-surgical treatment....

    Hi Jess...

    As far as I know, no one has studied that. My tronchanteric bursitis didn't get back until after my spine had been straightened. I think we can agree that curve size is a...

    Hi...

    I had leg pain whenever I stood up, for about a year prior to surgery. I thought I could live with the back pain, but the leg pain did me in. My leg pain was completely gone after surgery....

    The only reason I mentioned you is that you always seemed to question whenever someone with a small curve was considering surgery. :-)
