    Cathydrew,

    Welcome from me! I haven't had surgery, but you answered your own question at the bottom of your question. The medications DO make you sleepy. I'm a chronic pain sufferer and take...

    Linda,

    I wrote and asked the neurosurgeon if he would order the sagittal view. I haven't checked if he's responded, yet. I'll let everyone know how the appointment goes. It's on the 11th.

    Susan,

    I hope you heal well this time. Yes, that bacteria is found all over our skin. That's where the word "acne" comes from whether we suffer from acne or not...it lurks!

    My hospital does them. I'm not sure if they do them for fused patients or not, but it was offered to me at one point. I didn't think I wanted to even see the surgeon about it because I only had a...

    Tableone,

    I sent you a PM. I had no idea Jess had left the forum. However, Pooka is right. You can send her a private message and it will go to her e-mail. That's how I got yours.

    Best of luck....

    Wow! Beautiful pictures, Ed. I have a friend who lives in Venezuela. She hates it there to put it mildly. I said, "But it's so beautiful and colorful and you have the ocean nearby!" She hates the...

    Wow, Melissa!

    It's been a long time since I've been on the board. I didn't know you had broken rod surgery. Isn't that almost like having surgery for the first time? Ouch! You are still healing...

    Ed,
    I'm not a horsman, either. But I agree with Sharon about your leg position. Perhaps the stirrup strap is too short? It looks like it would give you less control of the horse. I'm not fused but...

    My original doctors predicted when I was 16 years old that I would "need" surgery in my early to mid 40's for a curve >40o.
    Although, it is official that I did reach over 40o and I was in my early...

    Jess,
    Just a guess, but since the thoracic vertebrae are less flexible, maybe the flexibility of the lumbar keeps it straighter. It's able to move around, whereas the thoracic has no means of...
