How badly will I suffer if I consider having scoliosis surgery as an adult? Will I regret the decision, or will it help improve quality of life?
Whew, it has been super-busy around Hey Clinic the past several weeks, and I regret not having time to sit down to do some writing and sharing with all of you! Thanksgiving was busy but wonderful, seeing some family, but also rounding each day at the hospital. I received an email this evening from Lynwood, a 42 you gentleman with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis and L5S1 anterolisthesis who developed progressive debilitating back and leg pain, and a horrible quality of life. He is now about 3 weeks postop and shares his thoughts below. Dr. Lloyd Hey - Hey Clinic for Scoliosis and Spine Surgery. http://www.heyclinic.com
