    Well, I just checked, and for some strange reason the "x-ray pics" link is taking me to my elementary kids spiking my hair. I don't know what's up with that. You can get to the others by just clicking on one of the other two choices and then down toward the bottom of the pictures it shows links to the other albums. Sorry. I don't remember how to link them at the moment. I'll work on it.

    Well, I have now worked on it enough to really botch it up royally. Oh well...

    My Scoliosis Surgery Journey since 1998-2012

    I was diagnosed with Scoliosis my freshman year of high school at Shriners Hospital in Tampa, FL and told I needed corrective surgery. I was 14 and petrified and my parents, thankfully, did not force me to have the surgery. I am not less than a month from being 27 and two days away from being exactly 6 months post-operative. I had a mulitlevel thoracolumbar spinal fusion with instrumentation, facetectomies, and osteotomies of my T-4 to my L-4. I am degenerative and bulging into my L-5, S-1, and S-2 but my amazing surgeon, Dr. Anthony Moreno did not want to compromise my mobility any more than we already were with the fusion. I was in the hospital almost 2 weeks and have had a few minor set backs. I am in pain all day every day. I have lost 15 pounds. I am on no pain medication or muscle relaxers other then tylenol. Here are some photos of my journey. From a failed IVC Filter impant (if your surgeon recommends this, make sure it's absolutely necessary in my case it wasn't and my body rejected it and I had it surgically removed 6 days later).
    Below is a link to most recent photos, you can see the instrumentation I am so thin

    Below is a link to other photos including before and after X-Rays as well as some photos of my scar, there is an adult advisory warning on my blog only because of the scar photos and I assume that would scare some children

    More photos of my old and new spine

    Gosh its so good to see how good of a correction you guys got.

    Sheree i've just seen your blog, i'm having a full fusion with possible pelvis fixation on 26th July so it makes me relax a little seeing how well you recovered or are recovering. I'm only 27 so hope for the same :-)

    Scolisurvivor, your correction looks great, you must be so pleased. I have an S shape curve, harrington rod at the bottom and my top curve was measured at 104* in Jan but it would still be nice to think my after xrays might be as good as yours. I'm keeping everything crossed :-) x
