My surgeon just diagnosed me with thoracic Junctional Kyphosis. I don't really understand this as I am fused from T2-L3 and it was my understanding that this only occurred above or below a fusion. Also, he is concerned that my increasing thoracic pain is from a possible non-fusion. I wonder how this can be as I've been fused for thirty years. Can you become unfused after all this time? We are now deciding whether to redo my entire fusion instead of just L3 to Sacrum. What a mess. I've had a hardware removal and do not want metal back in my thoracic spine because it felt so awful. It is my understanding that many of us suffer from thoracic aching and burning, so I do question whether straightening out my spine and putting in new hardware will help with the thoracic pain.
