Hi all,

I have just joined this forum and wanted to introduce myself. I am 26 years old and underwent a spinal fusion for scoliosis in May 2008. The surgery was sucessful in correcting my 46 degree curve to 5 degrees, however it is now 18 months later and I am still in much pain. My surgeon took the anterior approach and as part of this removed 2 of my ribs. I was wondering is anyone else had rib removal as part of their surgery and what pain was experienced afterwards, for how long and did you find anything that helped? Any experiences you can share post surgery would be helpful.
Thanks
