Thinking about getting a thoracoplasty done...I had my surgery when I was 13 and am now 24 and have had increasing pain in my hip/pelvis area as well as where my "hump" is. I saw Dr. Hanson in Houston who recommended this procedure. He thinks fixing the hump will reduce my hips from being misaligned while being seated and help with the pain where the hump is. Has anyone had similar pain and/or expierence?

I was also wondering how long any of you were out of work after such a procedure. Doc said is varies from person to person. I would appreciate any information on this subject and personal experiences with it. THANKS!!!
