Problems after spinal fusion surgery for scoliosis
I'm am 47 and have had scoliosis from age 13 (1976). I was a 43 and the Milw.Brace for 6 years and it went down to 33. In 1988, it was at 50. In 1993, I got breast cancer and had all the treatments.
After that, everything went downhill.I have Osteoporosis now. Last summer, it was at 82. No one in my town would do the surgery and had to go about 100 miles for a doctor. I had breathing problems and not alot of energy after surgery in Oct 2009. Just started P/T and doing better but still not breathing great. Im taking pain meds and use a inhaler. I don't sleep great. The family doctor was trying antidepression pills and sleep aids, but they make me harder to breath. Am I crazy?
