Hi I am new here(I did check in with the Newbie Thread) I8 years ago I had an Anterior Posterior Spinal Fusion to correct S shaped curvature. I was a college athlete at the time and it ended my career. I am current a teacher and a coach. I had a workplace injury in 2013 and that is when I was diagnosed with flatback syndrome. Finally We have got Work Comp to pay for my surgery after 6 Opinions and going through a deposition. Dr says I have to have a PSO and then ALIF Scolosis Revision Surgery.
My PSO is next month July 20, 2015. I have all of the clinical information but I would like to know information from someone who has had the procedure. What to expect? What will be my limitation? Will I be able to coach and teach again?
I look forward to talking to all of you and thank you for listening to me.
