Well, I just did a google search on it and the only thing I can find about this surgery is from the Orangemane!!

So these whispers that guy was hearing are very soft.

I got fused from T1 to L3 with 2 titanium rods and 26 titanium screws.

Good old scoliosis. It got picked up in one of those screenings they do in school so I went to the doctor for follow up xrays which showed I did in fact have a curved spine. This was when I was 12. As i hit growth spurts it got worse so i had stainless steel rods put in at 15. Hit another growth spurt and my spine curve where the rods stopped so they took them out and put in longer titanium rods at 16.

****ty times as a teenager.

I bet you were popular with the girls in high school. "Once you go hunchback, you never go back."

That must have been a fun diagnosis.

"So you say you're having troubles with your spine Mr. Swaiy? Do you ever have the sudden urge to ring bells in a French cathedral? No? Hmmmm....have you ever constricted a gerbil or other small woodland creature to death with your torso? Bingo - I think I know what your problem is."

Fused T1 to L3 is a very tough way to live.

You must have to wear loafers. You have my sympathy. Glad you are not in pain.

Any nerve damage?

Mine woke me up again tonight. slept about 90 minutes before I woke up with numb arms and muscles twitching (beyond spasming).

You ok now at least?

BTW I have never had trouble going through a metal detector or at Airports.

In my left arm, there is this random spot on my forearm that is literally numb. I didnt lose any strength but i cant feel anything unless its grabbed. Other than that, i dont have any major damage other than over half the area on my back being numb from being cut in to. It wasnt bad the first time but the second surgery pretty much made my back feel "sleep" heh. Oh yeah, I do have some random muscle twitching in my arms sometimes but not much.

Im good though.

90 minutes of sleep? Thats freakin awful. Did you do any physical therapy after healing up?
