I had extensive spinal fusions in 2006 and 2007 for scoliosis (lumbar region). I'm no teenager -- I'm now in my 60s. I've done pretty well over the years, all things considered, but now I've been getting pain in the thoracic region after doing gardening and other activities that didn't used to bother me. Just started seeing a phys. therapist, who said that the areas above and below the fusion are vulnerable since they're doing all the work, I guess. I'm hoping the phys. therapy will help -- really don't want to go through more surgery. Anyone have experience with this -- having a fusion and then problems years later? Thanks.
