    When I suffered a broken rod my surgeon...

    Moonglow, I wasn't being unfriendly in any way, just pointing out the obvious. To openly state you haven't kept up with someone's thread and then ask for them to recap it for you, especially when...

    Hi,

    As Linda mentions you would be best seen by an experienced scoliosis revision surgeon. I see you are in Northern CA, would it be possible to be seen at UCSF? Linda works there and could fill...

    Hi Susan,

    I'm glad you got to Stanford so quickly and had the hardware repaired. Pretty incredible and worrisome that OHSU didn't pick that up on your scans.
