    My dd was fused 5 yrs ago at the age of 15. Her fusion is from T4-L4. She's been doing well the past several years with only minor aches and pains. Before Thanksgiving, she started feeling sick and...

    Another option for you would be Texas Scottish Rite in Dallas. They're awesome and services are free of charge just like Shriners. I took my daughter there for a consult and really liked...

    It is a lot to take in, the halo was so unexpected. I suspect they wait until after traction to determine the length of fusion. That would be great if it's only thoracic.

    I was very sad to read...

    Wow! That's a bombshell. Thank goodness you were able to get to Shriner's, who knows what it would end up being if you had to wait back home. I'm glad your son is getting the care he needs and he's...

    Hi Del

    I'm so sorry to hear about Elysia continuing pain, it is so unfair. It doesn't appear that he went any higher, is that right? I wonder if he should have gone up a few more vertebrae to get...

    That doesn't sound too bad as far as taxes. We have an 8.5% sales tax and property taxes around here average around 3.5%, for instance, we're paying $7K in property taxes on a 3000 sf home and homes...

    My dd isn't the athletic type, she's also a computer "nerd" and has decided on a career in history. I was glad that at least the surgery hasn't had a huge impact on her in terms of what...

    Hi Kaitlyn
    I'm afraid the Spinecor won't do a thing for a fused spine. The only time braces are used after surgery is for support during the healing process.
