I thought I was "fixed"....I know now it was only temporary. I had Scoliosis & the big Spinal Reconstruction Surgery done in 2004 in California (UCSF) with good results after years of a grueling & very disciplined recovery & rehabilitation period. I feel like I'm in a bad dream though....this wasn't what I thought I'd be facing, again! Pain, the ability to be up on my feet has been hampered. I have to sit down often & the later it is in the day, the worse my pain is. Sound familiar? Now I've developed Flatback Syndrome& need surgery & need to be fused to my pelvis. What will that be like?
