Re: Finally being fused :D
To me surgery sounds like the best option if your kyphosis is at 85 degrees and is progressively getting worse. I'm glad to hear you've gotten it approved as you wanted. Hope all goes well for you on the journey!
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.
