Spine curves to left after L4/S1 fusion


Just got back from x-rays for my 6 week follow up X-rays. The report says everything seems like the operation was a success, but it also noted that my spine is curving to the left. Now I know my spine has always been straight. It bothered me, so when I got home I looked at the X-rays taken on the day of the operation, just before I went into theatre. On those x-rays my spine is still straight! How is that possible? Within 6 weeks from straight to s-curve, with a backbrace on 24hours.

Could the curving to the left be the cause of my extremely painful right hip and knee?

I am really fedup and depressed. Just as I think all is well something else pops up... any advice or iput on the curving spine will be appreciated!
