HI everybody. I am 32 and had surgery for scoliosis when I was 15. I have two Harrington rods and had the bone graft from my hip. I was fine until my late twenties. I now have strange pains that come and go. Sometimes they are in my knees, sometimes in my butt. I don't know the details, I am looking in to getting a copy of my medical records. I had my surgery at a Shriner's Clinic in Shreveport. My body is becoming increasingly asymmetrical. I can't get insurance because they exclude my back and they only insurance that would cover my back I cannot afford.
How do you deal with the pain? The left side of my body is so much larger than my right, but this was not that case five years ago. Of course it wasn't symmetrical. Is this a sign of something going wrong with the rods?
