I scheduled my surgery, May 25th :eek:

My doctor told me that my last vertebrae is arthritic and has already started fusing together... does this happen to everyone?

Vertebrae will spontaneously fuse as degenerative changes occur. Typically this does not happen until someone reaches 80 or so, but we scoliotics are stuck with rapidly aging spines so itís not at all unusual for this to happen when we are younger. Good luck with your surgery.
