Hello! Four weeks ago I underwent a thoracic spinal fusion of T2-T11 after multiple compression fractures due to dx of premenopausal osteoporosis (I am 32).
Overall, recovery has been rough, but I'm getting better each day! I haven't really paid much attention to my back in terms of looking at it in the mirror or feeling it, however, today after taking a shower, I looked at my back in the mirror and noticed a "bump" to the left of my incision. I ran my hand across it and it almost feels like the end of the rod? I'm not sure though and I don't know if it's been that way all along and I just haven't noticed.
i already had my first pre-op appt two weeks ago and don't go back to the doctor for two more weeks.
Anyone have experience with this?!
