    Question Growing Rods

    Hello!
    I love this site, it has been a source of valuable information for me. Thank you, thank you.....my daughter who is 8 will need growth rods this summer, and my question is........is there anyone out here who has or had these in and has any info for me?? I read alot about the final fusion of the spine but nothing about someone with growth rods in. Please help me, any advice would be greatly appreciated! Her next appt. is June 15th? and that is when we will decide when to do the surgery....Thank you all.....................

    Glad you enjoy the site......to get the best info from the most experienced age group, I would actually post your threads in the under 18 area.

    Hope all goes well for your daughter!
