I was wondering about that too actually.
I haven't had surgery yet but I've been getting the same storms here and it made me wonder. Also I was trying to think of how to run downstairs when there is a tornado.. but I'll cross that bridge when I get to it. (Maybe my fiance can carry me down! haha)
diagnosed at age 12

No surgery, was on "wait and watch" till recently. Got a SpineCor (Jan 27th) to help ease the pain.
