Re: Should I have surgery
hello-I am not familiar with hyperkyphosis but if it is true what you say about it continuing to get worse then I would maybe at least keep the option of surgery open. Maybe ask questions. I do know that the younger a person is, the faster the recovery. Surgery is a big thing in my opinion because it takes awhile to recover and there are risks and it depends on how your life might be affected by your kyphosis right now and if the benefits of surgery outweigh the risks and time it takes to recover. Or if you can get by with excercises for now to decrease the pain? Mine was 80 degrees I believe and I was in a lot of pain and I could not work because of it and physio wasn't really doing alot for me. Also I was at risk of having problems with discs slipping and stuff so surgery was about the only option so my decision was fairly easy. I am not sure what your circumstances are and how it is affecting your daily life so i dont want to give you too much advice to go one way or the other. Do you have a good doctor that you trust his/her advice? If so I would talk more with your doctor also maybe and consider your doctor's advice. Sorry this is probably not alot of help. I hope it helps somewaht though.
