I am a 45 year old female and have a long history of back issues. I wore a cast during high school for scoliosis. I did not begin having severe pain until my 30's. I have run the gambit of pain therapies... Both heavy narcotics and opiates to holistic medicines ...as well as physical therapy and steroid injections and having a spinal stimulator implanted (which I LOVE). I have been to several renown surgeons who all say that spinal reconstruction is my only option. I have read two books on this complex procedure but have yet to speak with anyone who has had it. I would truly appreciate any one taking the time advise me on where to go from here. I feel that I will truly never be quite prepared for what's to come, but would like to make sure I've exhausted all efforts in preparation.
