Last week I had an appointment with my surgeon who replaced my hips a year ago. All was very good with my hips.
Now he wants me to go see a specialist about my spine. I have already seen an orthopedic spine surgeon and he said he could not help me.
There is a surgury that may or may not help me. Because of the way my spine is abnormally curved from the AS, I guess they would remove one of my vertabrae (and I would assume put rods in.) I don't really know anything about this.
So my doctor wants me to find (he offered to help) and go see such a doctor just to see if they can do anything for me.
Has anyone else had a surgury like this? Was it successful? Were there a lot of complications?
Any help on this is much appreciated.
I know the feeling of finding yourself stuck out on a ledge...
