Hi there, My name is Kourtney.22 year old female. I stumbled across this forum after looking up falling down after spinal fusion..

This July I had a spinal fusion to fix shermans disease and scoliosis . Not sure of the exact details,I know of a few things and all my information is still in Illinois where I used to live and had the surgery. Recently moved back to Iowa. (going through a divorce)

Glad to be here!


  • I'm sorry to hear about your fall. Your Dr. can request OR report and all info from the hospital that did your surgery from the admitting dept. They fax info over right away. I hope your new life will be more stable after the divorce. Take care. Charry
