    June 2nd surgery

    Hey everybody,
    I'm really new here and this is really kinda last minute but here it is anyways. I'm having my first (and hopefully last) spine surgery tomorrow morning June 2nd by Dr. Horton. I've had scoliosis since I was 8 and now I'm 18 with an 85 degree curve. Anyways, I'm a little bit nervous and would really appreciate your prayers. Thanks!

    You got it sweetheart! You go!
    Actually I'm almost jealous! Almost! I'm at 80 degrees and still waiting on call back from the back surgeon in St. Louis. Good grief! I'm having the muscle cramping, spasms, numbness around to the front through the rib cage. Terrible pain most of the time; other times not too bad, but most of the time it's awful!
    Besta luck to ya!
