I thought i'd introduce myself by giving my current situation...
I'm now 20 but when I was 10 I had a scoliosis spinal fusion, and had my thoracic fused. Now i'm having lower back pain and the talk of a lumbar fusion is in the future, which scares me. (I just posted in chronic pain).
I love horses and I live to horseback ride. When I was 10 they left my lumbar un-fused so I could have some flexibility when I ride. 10 years later, everyone is telling me I need surgery again and that someone like me should not be riding horses. I was kind of curious to see if anyone has had any issues (those that have had scoliosis) with their instrumentation? Or if anyone has had a complete spinal fusion for scoliosis?
I'm hoping I can still ride if I go through with this, but i'm hoping to find alternatives on here.
