I had L-rod fusion T1 to L4 30 years ago and have led a very active life up until now. After consulting a surgeon due to progressive lower back and radiating hip/leg pain my xrays show the lower unfused verterbrae are now curving under the load of the upper fusion. The surgeon recommends frontal and posterior surgery (he is a surgeon after all) but I'm almost 60 with recent health issues (including a year in bed) from which I'm just now recovering . I don't think my body can take it and there's no guarantee of being pain free.
In short, I'm seeking people who have had additional curvature resulting from spinal surgery. I'm also seeking advice on nonsurgical treatment to halt the curve progression.
