Hello I am new to this forum but I wanted to see if anybody had or has the same problems I am having. I recently had scoliosis surgery after the pain had gotten worse from a lumbar cage fusion from a fall a couple years ago . My degree of curve was 47 thoracic and 52 lumbar. I recently was bending over and heard a large pop in my back. Come to find out I had broken both titanium rods in the lumbar area of my back. The instrumentation was made by Synthes. I have another surgery soon to reinforce the broken rods with more rods and screws. Does anybody have the same problem? I was only 4 months post op. Did anybody have to wear a brace after there surgery and if so how long. I was told I didn't need one after surgery. Thanks for any information.
