Sun, Jun 16 9:05am · Scoliosis - Introduce yourself and meet others in Spine Health

I am 64 with idiopathic scoliosis that wasn’t discovered until 3 years ago. I have an S curve with a 22 degree curve in the thoracic spine and a 33 degree curve in the lumbar spine. I rely on a small TENS unit, ice, and core exercises to manage the pain.

I understand; giving up what we love to do is hard. Can you be involved with horses in another way, like a 4 H program? Have your doctors suggested anything besides medication?

Ann, did you increase water intake and take Tylenol pre and post infusion? Was it infused over a longer period than the 15 minutes? Did you do anything else to prepare for it?

Thank you for your thoughtful reply. I think I’m ready to go ahead and get the infusion, but there is so much negative information out there that I found myself scared to move forward, especially after developing gastritis while using the Fosamax. Again, thank you for taking the time to better inform me.

I have been on Fosamax for 2 years but had to come off in December due to stomach inflammation which I had never had before. Now my rheumatologist wants me to start Reclast. Has anyone had a good experience with this drug? The side effects are frightening.
