View Full Version : kyphosis - spinal fusion

Is there anyone out there who has had an anteriol release/posteriol spinal fusion for kyphosis.
We are from Massachusetts and my son (14) is scheduled for surgery this coming December. We'd really love to talk to someone who has been through this. We have come to terms with the necessity of this but, the odds are not very comforting - 1 - 50 paralysis and 1 - 30 have to have it re-done? I'd appreciate any words - and need to have my son talk to someone who has gone through this - I can only e-mail from work...computer down at home...so, please let me know if someone would be willing to talk. Thanks!!!
