pedicle subtaction osteotomy
I have had 15 prinal surgeries in the past 6 years, the last completing the fusion from T7-L5. This begain as a single disk and the dominoed into fusions.The initial fusion was set flat, causing a flat back in the L2-5 region. Now, several years later and many sugeries after I am left with an imbalance that causes me to lean forward. Now they want to do this osteotomy to permanently straighten my back. This is a huge surgery and I wanted to know if anyone has had this procedure, what your symtpoms were before and how do you feel afterwards.
