    How do you know it's degenerative? Pookah could have been 10 degrees her whole life. Doctors don't always notice small curves.

    What do your daughters think of your having scoliosis, if 10 degrees can even be called scoliosis? I wonder how many people have this degree of curvature and they are never made aware of it.

    Do you regret that you originally decided to have surgery? Do you feel that one surgery led to the next? Or was surgery inevitable?

    There's no need to see your surgeon after a year or two...as long as everything is all right.

    Nothing has ever been all right for me, though. I haven't reached the "all right" stage.

    OK, in the first year, how often do people see their surgeon? Especially how long after the surgery is that first checkup for most patients?

    A lot of practices went on in the past that you wouldn't see today. In the 70's as a teen I went to my mother's doctor for gynecology exams. He had his own practice in an office (in a part of the...

    Delivery has its drawbacks. Primarily that the shoppers make some weird substitutions at their discretion. But they are saving me from going out so I shouldn't complain.
