Re: Im one month since surgery

Great to hear how well you're doing Daniel :) I would ask about the cracking noise at your review appointment, I'm sure your surgeon will be able to put your mind at rest.

Re: Older people and Scoliosis surgery

If there is an area of pseudarthrosis (non-union) and the rods break then they can go in and repair/replace them and it's nothing like the original op in terms of pain and recovery. There's no reason...

Re: Returning to work after fusion

I went back at 4 months but I am much older than you!! Can you get up from time to time and have a stretch in your booth? If so, I think you should be fine :)
