Awesome, Lee, I'm so glad everything has gone so well for you and that you've been able to improve your quality of life. That's what it's all about!
Nice to hear the screw issue sorted itself out as well.
I was diagnosed with Scheuermann's Kyphosis at age 16. I had an 80-degree thoracolumbar kyphosis and mild scoliosis. My posterior fusion surgery was performed by Dr. Sethi in Seattle on Earth Day 2014.
It reduced my kyphosis to 50 degrees and my scoliosis to about zero.
