Just wondering how long an anterior incision would be are most peoples scars the same?
Im also having posterior as well. I'm getting fused from T3 to L3 what are some of your measurements?

Thanks :)

Mine is long, 12 inches.
I think it really depends on what they have to do in there that determines the length of the incision.

I had anterior and posterior surgery. My anterior was laproscopic. Three very small incisions. Only one stitch. My posterior was a different story. I had well over 60 staples down my spine. Around 12 staples on my hip where bone was taken from. No one ever wants to go through this kind of surgery but once but it does not always end up that way. I have had it done three times.

Mine is 8 inches long. It obviously varies from individual to individual.
