My four-almost-five year old had growing rods put in March 23. Three weeks ago, they were lengthened. One week from Friday, he is scheduled to have them lengthened again. I am cocncerned that he is not ready for this next surgery as he hasn't bounced back from the last one yet. Also, doesn't the spine need to adjust to the last lenthening before adjussting the rods again? He is in the same body cast he was put in a week before the first surgery. Any feedback would be appreciated. What are any suggestions for helping with the itching?
