I scheduled surgery today for Sept 6 and Sept 8 I will be fused from T9 to the sacrum. My curve measures about 55 degrees and it is all in the lumbar. He said I was on the borderline for surgery but I also have herniated discs as well as some stenosis. My surgeon, Greg Anderson from the Rothman Institute will perform the surgery.

Believe me, you'll start to be somewhat relieved you made a decision...I felt so much better to have made the decision & get on with things... of course the waiting & anticipation is rough but you don't have long at all! good luck! You'll have to meet Chris(Singer) & I sometime after we're all thru with this & in better shape! Ly- :) :)

Hi Dawn,

The anticapation of the surgery is just as bad as having it, in my opinion. So don't be afraid of expressing your thoughts and fears!!! We're here for you!!!
