I had correction of my Scoliosis in 2012. They went through the side instead of having it down over my back. I recently had a follow up with my Consultant and had some really bad news. I had my x-rays which showed that my curve was coming back. He gave me the option on whether I have a second operation or not. Instead of fusing quarter of my spine like before, the whole of my spine would be fused so I would be less flexible. There are lots of pros and cons to having it done or not and I am really confused about what to do. I have been in so much pain for the last 2 years due to my operation and I have been told the new operation could free me from pain or it could be just that same. So I am just so confused on what is right to do and just wanted some advice and some thoughts please. I would really appreicate it :)
