: : Hi my name is Chrissy I was diagnosed with Scheurman's Kyphosis when I was 14 years of age. I was put into bracing very soon after that. I spend four years of my life in braces...including the Milwalkee Brace Most recently in Nov. 10 1997 I underwent Spinal Fusion Surgery. I was sent to Alred I. Dupont Institution to have Surgery done. They procedure was known as a posterior anterior C D Rod instrumentation spinal Fusion. I now have stainless steel rods fused in my back prior to surgery my curvature was 90 degrees and I was having breathing and heart problems surgery was inevidable at this point I am not 20 years old and am in college anyone who would like to know what it's like living with this and what it was like I would be happy to share my experiences. I would be happy to share about my post surgery experiences what the surgery is like etc please e-mail me I want to help.....HUGS CHRISSY :)

: Hi I am Susan and would love to hear anything about surgery, post surgery and recovery, pain, mobility, etc. My surgeon has a great reputation but he has been very vague with me about details.

: I have much pain in my legs and now some in my arms and hands too. Please let me know anything about this surgery. I am concerned.

: Thanks in advance

Chrissy, My son was just diagnosed with Scheuermans disease. I would love to hear from you about your experiences with braces and surgery. Please contact me via this web site.
Thanks, Cheryl
