Re: It happened yesterday
Congrats on a successful surgery, Ryan!
I don't know if I can offer any suggestions - I'm at week 4 myself and still trying to sort out how much I can do and when to stop and get help from someone else. I guess my advice would be to master the log roll, wear the brace as directed and do your best not to bend, lift or twist. That last part's been hard for me but I want to get into better habits now to avoid accidental movements I shouldn't make - that's important since it's a critical time for my spine healing and fusing.
Best of luck with everything! I'd love to see pre/post op x-rays as well when you get them. Always great to see the changes.
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 47 degrees and my scoliosis to about zero!
