OK, this is my first post since the op. Had my PSO on 4 April and left hospital on 11 April. Will have to look at the post-op Xrays again, but it appears that 14 levels were done. I regained about 3,5 cm in height and am upright. The forward kyphosis have been addressed very well and my sagital imbalance was drawn back about 25 cm. I now see the horizon when I stand and look straight ahead, instead of 45% down. The sideways scoliosis was also corrected probably about 90%. The surgeon (Dr Coetzee) said her wanted to work higher up, but the neuromonitor warned of trouble and wouldn't allow it. I am extremely thankful as this has changed my life already. Apart from the balance, spine realignment and aesthetics, I have now a freedom of breathing that I haven't had in more than 3 decades. I'm doing ALL my physio-exercises without fail and take 4 short walks every day. Evert day is better than the previous and I am extremely positive and thankful. Planning to buy a new home gym traiing system to start using in about 3 months time. Will start cycling then too if not earlier. WALKING TALL!

Hello Tobias,

As I was the first time around in this thread, I am late to the party when it comes to your surgery, but I am thrilled to hear that it went very well and that you achieved all the benefits you had hoped for, if not more. Great to hear you are doing so well, and I am very happy to hear that you gained so much correction as a result of the osteotomy. It sounds like yours was just as successful as mine was, if not more so. Congratulations!

Brad
