Default Re: Introduction- Surgery in 3 days

Wow, what a great correction you got Hayley and the scar looks nice and neat too and sometimes they need to fuse less than originally though, as they can only give a very good estimate of what needs to be done on an xray, and when they get in they sometimes do more and sometimes less than stated, but they will say if they did more, at least my surgeon did.

How are you feeling now?
Diagnosed at 14 in '08 with Neuromuscular Kyposcoliosis (due to my Neurofibromatosis Type 1) in the Thoraco-lumber region (T-65* L60*).
Halo traction for a week then I had surgery 08/05/14, fused C5-T12 correcting curves by about half! By the wonderful and amazing, Mr Bernard. And then an Anterior Iliac Strut graft in my neck/ chest on the 05/06/14
