    Default Fingers crossed

    Well I have been told that the surgeons at the royal orthopedic hospital have their monthly meeting on monday and this is when they discuss and make up the surgery list for the next month.
    Lucky for me I am top of the waiting list, so should fingers crossed get a call next week with a view to being admitted the week after for my spinal fusion surgery.
    Its been a long time waiting, not to far of 3 years I think.

    My time will come soon

    Hoping the best
    Diagnosed with a 75 degree Scheuermann's kyphosis curve in 2010. After numerous doctor visits and a few years later, my curve had developed into one measuring 95 degrees. I had my spinal fusion done June 21, 2012 at the Children's Hospital of Georgia by Norman Chutkan in Augusta, GA.I'm now fused from T5 to L3.

    Sorry to hear that, Mark.

    Here's hoping you can get your SK operated on soon!

    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.
