Hello lotsofpain, I am Sunnyflower. My heart is so heavy reading about your situation. My concern about your bending over so much is that your lung capacity ability to fully expand. Are you in physical therapy of any kind to help prevent a problem w/ your lungs? If not, I think it prudent that you ask your PCP for a referral and try to begin ASAP. I have not read your discussions w/ others so my opinion may be a repeat. Many blessings and prayers for relief, Sunnyflower

I am glad that it is not her spine so maybe they can do something for the muscles with this second surgery. I only have 30% of my lung capacity from severe scoliosis but there is nothing they can do to stop the spine. I was told basically that I will at some point suffocate to death. My diaphragm is up in my lungs and my spine is also bending left towards my heart. Being deformed either way is bad for the lungs and I am hoping she has a better chance than me.
