My 82 year-old husband is having his second kyphoplasty later this month. The first one was two years ago for a burst thoracic vertebra T8. This one is for a new compression fracture T9. He has severe kyphosis from Osteoporosis and Rheumatoid Arthritis, but was gradually able to function pretty well after his first surgery, although it took a while. I’m hoping he will get some physical therapy afterward this time, so he might be able to recover faster and gain more flexibility. Those of you with kyphoplasty experience: have you had success with Physical Therapy? Osteoporosis medication??
