    Leanne,
    I have Nancy Solo's email and I will ask her for Shari's phone number. They are both from Michigan and have met for lunch to discuss their surgeries. I will get the number to you asap.

    Leanne,
    I just checked and that is the same email address that's on her web site, so you may have the same problem.

    Hello! It's me and I can't apologize enough for how busy I have been. I started my own business and it is crazy how well it is going. I just told my husband tonight, "I so want to spend a couple hours on line tonight to catch up with all my dear scoli friends I owe emails too. I came on here first and felt awful I was so slow. So I am touching base tonight with you!!
    I am looking so forward to chatting by email and by phone if we can soon.

    Chat soon!

    Hi,
    Things arent going very well, so I just wouldnt know where to begin anymore. I was looking for help with the Shingles before. I think its caused bad nerve damage but I have so much pain i really dont know anything anymore. Another CT of my thorasic, lumbar and pelvic this Friday only because I broke down and was crying when my surgeon just told me to "hang in there" again... Had thorasic ct 3/18 down at the U of M but that surgeon was young, 6 yrs experience and just said the hardware is irritating because I am "thin" and it could be removed at 6 mos post op if you have a solid fusion..that ct showed just 50% fusion some areas fusing some not at 4 1/2 mos post op. I have alot of pain and my surgeon who is no help at all.He has an ego, and just would never acknowlege there being a problem. Ex, I had a suture popping out of my back from the surgery that didnt absorb and he said wait it will just go away. I waited 7 weeks. Finally begged to have it removed. Have an auto-immune ( or ? ) dont know, something since surgery and cant even begin on that. I think I will need the hardware ( hopefully if I fuse, I am 5 1/2 mos post op now )removed and I need need a different good surgeon in Mn. My ins is limited..
