    Welcome to the boards! I had a compression fracture to T11 and T12 which resulted in kyphosis. I had a two level anterior fusion with instrumentation done on Dec. 5th 2002. They straightened me up from 55 degrees to about 20. What degrees were/ are you? I dont have pain in my shoulder...well I do but I believe it is nerve pain from my accident not from the kyphosis. I dont know what thoracotomy is so I guess mines different than yours but I just wanted to chime in here and let you know I had kyphosis too.

    mine kyphosis was not from an accident it was frm a disorder i got it because i had scoliosis and i wore a brace for 2 years to correct it and it did only it gave me a hump back so 8 years later i decided to have it corrected beacause of breathing problems. my thoracic curve was 60 degrees when i was first diagnosed. before my surgery it was 77. now im not so sure but i think its 55.
