Hi, my name is James, I just recently underwent a t-12 thorasic abdomanal corpectemy with fusion and hardware, and let me tell you IT WAS HECK, The pain I underwent and still am dealing with is unbelieveable, if I had only known my outcome, and still not sure if I will ever be 100%, I would have looked into other ways of corecting this, the pain meds are not working anymore, and my muscles are in serious trama, and I cant feel have of my stomach area, and around the incision area, my skin is like on fire in these area's and it is numb, will these systoms ever go away, not to mention I can barely walk, my surgery was on 9-22-08 and it is now late october, still early I know, but will I ever be the same again?? :''(


  • I am not sure if you will ever be 100% again, but am sure that you will be lots better than you are now. It is still very early on and you still have major healing to do. Good luck and keep us posted.
  • Hey thank you for the reply, I am new here, and was a long time reader of this sight way before surgery, now I am part of the gang,lol
