okay I'm scheduled for scoliosis surgery, anterior on the 10th of Jan, & posterior Jan 11th. I just got off phone with the physician's assistant and she told me things that may happen. One being I might be trading my back pain from scoliosis for nerve pain. And she talked about swelling in the legs. Because maybe vascular tissue can be cut during the pelvic fusion?! How bout, no! Supposed to get this done in a couple days now I'm back to wanting to cancel it. Possible rod breaking too? I won't start feeling better til 6 months? What's with the leg swelling? I know a gal who is 4 months post op and has exactly that. And possible kyphosis - in my neck area since that won't be fused. I'm scared!! I just want to get rid of my scoliosis. I don't want a whole new set of problems! Anyone have these two surgeries back to back for scoliosis?
