Hi I have scholiois and am having a fusion done. Mine will be starting at the T11 and going down. I can't remember just what he said about how many he would be doing. He said I would be in the hospital for 5-6 days and in a back brace for atleast 6 months.

What I am hoping to find here is other people with the same surgery and those who have scholiois . The surgery is suppose to help straighten my spine as much as the can and relieve the pain in my lower back and butt.

Any help would be great . thank you carol


  • hi there,

    I have not had a fusion. I have a herniated disc at L5-S1 and tried a MicroDiscectomy that didn't work. I'm trying a revision of the same surgery in which they 'remove' the loose piece of disc material. If that doens't work I'm up against a 1 or 2 level fusion.

    Anyhow, ask questions. I can try to reach out to my sister. She has a friend who has dealt with scholiosis her entire life. She has had a few fusions I believe. She is now 40 and is doing well though I don't know where her fusions were.

    It's great you are here to do research and gain insight from other people's exerience.
