Hi -- I'm new to forum and starting my recovery
Prior to my surgery I checked out this site for helpful tips to get me prepared for surgery. Well...I had my fusion July 16 and am now about 6 weeks post-op. My fusion was T2-L2 and most of the work was done at the top and at the bottom because my Scheuermann's kyphosis caused pretty dramatic changes to my neck and lumbar spine. I have my first post-op appointment with my surgeon in a few days and I'm starting to get nervous. I guess I just worry about all the screws and rods being in the right spot and I worry about everything healing correctly. My initial curve was about 80degrees and I'm anxious to find out what it's at now considering how much straighter I look.
Anyway, after following this forum for awhile I figured I'd actually sign up and say hi and introduce myself. Since I've made it through the first several weeks and now feeling like the real recovery starts, I was hoping to get some insight into what I can expect over the coming weeks.
Nice to meet you all!!
