    I think it will make things better. I've read a lot of articles relating to the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare. I've "liked" Ezra Klein (WA Post) on Facebook, and he's been talking about the...
  2. No one

    This is off topic and not meant as an attack on anyone, so please don't take it that way. It's just a pet peeve of mine, and it jumps out at me every time I see it: There is no such word as...

    Hi Susan,

    I don't know if you'll see this before you go into surgery today or not, but I just wanted to wish you well. It sounds like your attitude and frame of mind are fantastic, and you're...

    Yes, thank you for posting! I saw this story recently and thought about posting it here, but didn't get around to it. It's very interesting, not only that the dolphin has scoliosis, but that the...

    Hi Ed, maybe you've talked about it before and I missed it, but can I ask how surgery saved your life? Were you having heart/lung issues because of your curves, or something like that? My gosh.

    The thing that was surprising to me was how difficult it can be for the doctor to find out where the pain is coming from so they can treat it with the injections or nerve ablation or whatever. I...

    I've been given steroid injections at as many as 3 levels at once. I think those were facet joint injections, as they thought that might be where my pain was coming from. So they do give injections...

    I'm glad you were able to quit. I quit cold turkey, but I'm not sure I was ever really addicted. I only smoked for about 6 years, and I didn't smoke very much unless I was around other people who...

    Oh, that's too bad about the spasms. Ow! It can hurt if I move any area where the needles are in. I found that out. She told me "Oh no, movement is not encouraged!" LOL. But I haven't had spasms....

    Hi Jess!

    Yes, it's because of you mentioning Botox shots here on the forum that I wondered why my doctor didn't offer them to me and I asked him about them. :)

    Hi,

    I haven't had surgery yet. If you aren't already seeing a pain mgmt dr, I recommend it. I've been going to one for a few years now. Mostly I've tried steroid injections at a lot of...

    Thank you for the tips! I don't remember this being talked about here, but I really wondered because I lean way over the sink when I brush my teeth, and when I wash my face too. If I don't, I...

    I haven't had surgery, and I've wondered about this. Maybe this is a dumb question, but while you're under the restrictions, how do you manage things like brushing your teeth, washing your hands, or...

    Ed, do you happen to know of any way I could view this program? I was hoping I might be able to watch it online, but I guess not. Maybe the Discovery Channel has it for sale. I'll have to look...
  18. Pain vs curve size

    Jess, I can vouch for what Linda & others have said. Curve size matters more with kids/teens than adults.

    I just had a 1-year followup visit with Dr. Ganocy, in Los Angeles, the surgeon who...

    Exercise ball!

    One of my favorite ways to stretch is by using an exercise ball. In fact, this thread reminded me of it, so I just used it to stretch and thought "Why am I not doing this more often?!" I like to...

    Lactic acid?

    I remember asking my dr. about this when my back starting hurting so much with standing or walking. She gave me some print outs to read. When muscles burn, it's because of a build up...
