im new here im 35 yr old male and found this site while looking into corrective surgey for thorasic kyphosis
ive seen several doctors here in australia and they are not willing to do any surgery to correct my thoratic kyphosis until it becomes so bad that there is no other way for me to walk, its not a common practise in this country apparantly.
my curve is 60deg and i have slight scoliosis, but its the kyphosis that im mostly concerned about as it has gotten worse over the years
im looking at headding over seas to have the surgery done and really dont know what to expect, ive been told that having rods put into my back will straighten me out and reduce my pain, but im not sure what to expect afterwards?
will movement be limited?
could i still play with my kids?
drive a car?
ive come across a few failed surgery stories while browsing here and im very confussed on what i should do
any advise from someone who's had the surgery would be greatly appreciated
