Re: Sudden pain 18 mos. post surgery

I wonder if she's pulled a muscle or something? Luckily she doesn't have too long to wait to be reassessed, it's such a stressful time when you don't know what's wrong, you're brain goes naturally...

Re: Consultant vs Pain Management

Just how the heck can she make a call like that having not seen the scan results??!!!

This is probably why your...

Re: Nicol's op cancelled

Oh no, poor Nicol - and you and hubby too of course :( I don't think surgeons realise what a lot of organisation needs to go into supporting a child having the kind of surgery. I think it should be...

Re: Jaw pain...

It does sound like TMJD Jay, I've had the same thing once and my dentist gave me an exercise sheet for my jaw which seemed to do the trick.

Re: please god, don't let Nicol get a cold!

Re: Need to hear from the voice of experience

Hi Chris :welcome:

I had surgery at 49 for an 80 degree scoliosis curve and then revisions (because one level didn't fuse properly), the last one being almost 2 years ago when I was 55. I am fused...

Re: Hip pain! Scoliosis related?

Oh, it was all to do with my lack of natural lordosis and the orientation of my pelvis. In a weird way I could kind of compensate for it before surgery but once my spine was fused it revealed the...

Re: Are you happy with your operations

Re: Appointment while at uni...

I think I would stay with the same surgeon and try to arrange appointments in term time as I think continuity of care, wherever possible, is really important. Obviously, for anyone who wasn't happy...
