Scoliosis

Posted by palmsprings59 @palmsprings59, Jan 27 1:58pm

I have adult scoliosis and need THR as bone is almost gone. Anyone have both of these issues? Anything to help scoliosis..i exercise and don't want spine surgery. Stem cells? Decompression?

Hi, I have scoliosis so severe that doctors had difficulty inserting 2 leads for pain control. I had a total hip replacement 2 years ago and all is well. Maybe I don't understand, but what does one have to do with the other? Why would you need spine surgery to get a new hip? I've had 2 Harrington rods & 6 screws inserted to stabilize my back, but neither helped. Last October 2020 I had a Nevro pain blocker implanted in my left flank with 2 leads to both sides of my spine. There are many settings on my remote, and I am now about 70% pain free.

I also was puzzled by the way the question was posed, so it isn’t just you.

Wonderful that you are having so much relief from your stimulator. I have a Medtronics one and it has really helped me a lot!
