Spinal reconstruction surgery

Started by Zibeth on 02/06/2016 8:43am

I'm 55 yes old and had Harrington rods put in my back in 1982. Long story short I've had 10 surgies over the years.. The last one was for a Spinal cord stimulater (didn't work) In the past 5 years I've not been able to stand up straight..Last week my new Dr told me I have Flat Back Syndrome.. And the Harrington rods are not sticking out of my back.. In order to ever stand straight again I will need spinal reconstrucion surgery..Has anyone had this done and does it really work??

Do you find this discussion helpful?
