Spinal Fusion

Started by Jesika Barbieri on 10/18/2016 9:02am

Hey! I'm 15 and I plan on getting spinal fusion for my scoliosis. I still haven't talk to the surgeon yet but I've done enough research that this is most lol the surgery that I'll be getting. I'm alittle scared and how much they can straighten my spine.

Do you find this discussion helpful?

Hi Jesika,

Well, I've just been through a fusion, 24.10.2016, due to a deformation of the spine. Mine was from thoracic 7 to lumbar 1. I'm still deep in recovery but I can say already that my posture is better and I am just under 3cm taller, and I can't even stand up straight yet. Not a side effect I was even considering when going forward with the operation but a nice bonus.

I don't want to bore you with unwanted details and stuff but if you'd like to talk a little more about the whole situation, surgery and recovery then let me know.
Be strong.
