Re: anyone had spine fusion done

I have had my spine fused from T10 to L3. The only reason they didn't fuse the upper spine is that arthritis had already done that for me. I was told I should have had surgery in my late teens but didn't. I wore a brace for 2 years that did not halt the curvature. Then when I grew up and got my own insurance, they would not refer me out. I finally got a doctor that did and was told I needed surgery as soon as possible. By this time I was in my 40s. I am glad I did. I couldn't sit more than 30 minutes before surgery without my back swelling up and putting me in severe pain. Now I can sit for a lot longer. I am glad I had the fusion. It did help.
