Spinal Fusion with a curve...

Started by healdhj on 08/20/2010 4:42pm

Greetings,

In 2005 I underwent a spinal fusion to treat Shuerman's Kyphosis. I was diagnosised with a 62' thoracic curve with a 9' right scoliosis. It was causing herniated disks at T2-3 and T8-9.

The US Navy added 2 rods and 16 screws. I was essentially laid on a table and put face down, and then the rods were put in. The curve was not really corrected. As such I have a pivot point near T10.

I have been working with a chiropractor for over a year and he has done me wonders, but my cervical and lumbar curves are suffering becasue poor curve correction.

Does anyone have any input on a possible fix? Is trying to have the curve improved via surgery worth the pain and effort?

Harold
