    I went back and saw you mention you are fused T9-L5.

    The potential revisions with this include needing to go to S1 and PJK above T9. As I understand it, the former would not surprise anyone but...

    I think the chiros wrote that paper to defend against the notion that they take a lot of radiographs. It's a self-fluff piece.

    Why the reluctance to tether the entire lumbar among other surgeons??

    A reluctance to fuse past L3 (or at all) in kids is understandably but I didn't realize the same concern applied to tethering.

    The other thing is your T fusion ended pretty high at T12. I am wondering what rule they used to end it there.

    Did they do bending films before your surgery?
