Will someone please tell me if you've had the same experience? I had spinal fusion for a Scoliosis curve of 59 degrees from T2-L4 in 1998. I only had five good years of feeling "normal" or pain free, even though it didn't straighten out my spine to more than a 30 degree curve. Suddenly I woke up one day out of the blue in extreme pain and my neck was hunched forward. It has been four years and I have had chiropractic adjustments every week since then and even purchased a Tempupedic bed only to get minimal results. I am crippled by the pain and cannot live a normal life. My entire neck is always out of alignment, as is my lower back, and I have constant burning in my upper back near the rods. I just feel like I can't go on anymore in this much pain and the orthopedic doctor said my spine is better than before, he can't explain the pain but he believes me, and there's nothing he can do for me. If you ask me, these spine surgeons want to get paid and they don't care if the surgery fails and you're left with your life ruined. I'm so frustrated!!!! Anyone out there like me? I would love to know you!
