I am back from hell…AKA Austin, TX….I didn’t get the good news I had been hoping for. There will not be physical therapy at this time.
Let me take you back in time.
In 1982 I had my first surgery for scoliosis, a Harrington Rod was used to correct the curvature of my spine.
In 1996 it was removed as the rod had broken.
I lived without any hardware in my body from 1996 until June 2009.
In December 2009 another revision was done which included more hardware. The images above were taken this morning, you can see all the screws that are holding me together. I’m sorta Bionic, but not really.
This reminds me of the image on the right. (the bottom screws)
