I have a favor to ask all of you, if you don't mind.

For a scholarship competition I am researching the long term effects that patients who underwent spinal fusion surgery for scoliosis may face in the future. If you guys have any ideas on what to specifically discuss or any website links, that would be so much appreciated! I'm already going to look through old threads in the research section for any ideas.

If you could do this, I would be so very thankful! I already know some common things to discuss, but I'm also looking into things that maybe aren't well known or researched (like the effects of having the metal in your body for your entire life, etc.) Thanks a bunch!
