- Had my first major operation for the harrington rod surgery at the age 9/10 had my 10th birthday there. Had many operations extending the rod. Had a disinfection in one where had surgery to correct, think another one was put in. Last operation was June 2006 where they took my rod out (unknown at the time for me) and they took few ribs out as they couldn't do more with the rod im only guessing (we never actually found out the reason and the doctor retired now so never will..) Still have major scoliosis although underweight and would be risk of paralized if was to prefrom operation now and many other high risks.
