I had a feeling snow will not be much better. right now I can tell the weather better then the weatherman. I all so have that rib pain, but mine is around all the time not just bad weather. right now my pain lvs are so much higher but I am only 2 weeks out from my second surg, to remove that top screw. off the the doc's offices today to have incession looked at..i'll see a PA insead of the surgon for this, but still hope for some answers. good luck with travlen Meg56 I don't think I could do that just yet still can't sit for very long at a time. have a safe but fun journey.

    so...weather changes.....as long as the barometric pressure is not moving at all i'm great!  as soon as it changes i can feel it....definitely.  and big weather systems get me about 24 hours before they arrive.  and it's gnawing aching.  i'm starting to learn that if i'm not sure what i did, and i'm still sore, that it's likely weather related and give it a day to see if it gets better.  i get achy and then stiff....very very stiff.  then when the system passes it's better. 

    good luck today xrobynx!

  • I had my surgery in 1992 I have always had really bad Lower back pain even after my surgery. I also have neck pain. And my tailbone sticks. Out a lot with me living with scoliosis is a night mare because of all the pain I have. I had to have a 2 nd surgery at 19 to remove a piece of rod from my neck. I now have arthritis in my neck and can't hardly turn it. Scoliosis doesn't just affect your spine it affects your whole body basically.

  • I. Also can't lay on my left side or it shoots pain in my lower back. And the weather kills my back too
