Thorasic scoliosis removed harrington rods
I am a 38 yr old female with Dextroscolisis of the Thoracic spine. I had Harrington Rods placed in my back when i was 19. Due to a "infection" from the rods i had them taken out the same year. My Cobb line was at a 90 degree angle and it still is. I have Pulmonary problems as well. I am in alot of pain all the time and as i get older it gets harder to get up and down. My neck hurts alot and also my lower back and down my legs. I was seeing a pain specialist and he wanted me to get my records on my surgery's. The only one i can get is when i had the rods taken out They seemed to have lots my paper work on the official surgery. No were to be found. Huh imagine that. I cant get get anywhere with any Dr or anything cause they don't want to do another surgery so i guess im just another statistic. I need help. i dont no what to do or who to go to for advice. I have Insurance i just get no call backs from Doctors or future appts. Help im in major pain here with a 2 yr old im trying to care for when i cant move.
