Re: How to deal with the waiting?

Re: Not One Answer?

As an international site, the potential for there to be a language barrier is something we should all be aware of. Orchidea86 is from Poland - I wish I could speak Polish as well as she speaks...

Re: Trunk rotation - Is it possible to fix?

Ah I see - the vast majority of people have their rib humps at the posterior of their ribcage, but yours is interesting and different due to you having an unusual form of scoli. Thanks for posting...

Re: Trunk rotation - Is it possible to fix?

If your rib hump is on your right hand side then you have a right convex thoracic curve, not a concave one. The convexity is what causes it to bow outwards into the hump.

Re: Older people and Scoliosis surgery

I know it is often done as a standalone surgery, as it's also seen in people without spinal deformities. I'm unsure whether our members here had it done as a standalone though - hopefully they will...

It can be very useful to see the Pain Clnic - there is a lot they can do without needing MRI scans etc. An experienced pain management doctor can feel your spinal muscles for spasms and do...

Re: Introduction and Questions

The steri-strips should fall off naturally with showering anyway. I know they are a pain but it's probably best to wait for them to come away on their own. Three weeks post-op is still very early...

Re: Very worried!

Hi Steph, welcome to SSO :welcome2:

Fom the date in your username, it sounds as though you are about the same age as I am. I had scoliosis since I was a baby and had my thoracic spine (T1-T12) fused...

Re: Front rib discomfort

Yes, the effects of the injections wear off but for me the anterior rib pain never came back as bad as it had been before. When I get it now, it is mild discomfort rather than really sharp annoying...

Re: Front rib discomfort

Hi Sarah, this is most likely to be nerve pain from your back that tracks round to the front of your ribcage. I had exactly the same sort of discomfort, and a steroid injection into my back sorted it...
