Hi Everyone

I am new to this forum. I am a 38 year old woman that needs to have decompression and spinal fusion surgery. I have a 52 degree curve and have not been symptomatic until about 2 months ago when I started to get numbness in my right leg. Scans and Mri's later I have a pinched nerve in the L4/L5 region due to my curve.

These forums are a great support so thanks in advance,
