Thanks Susie. His appointment went as good as could be expected. His back has worsened. In January he was 70 degrees and today he was 78 degrees. The orthopedic surgeon does feel like our best option is surgery and the harrington rods is what they will use. We are in a dilemma on the neurosurgeon situation here on when they can get him in. They are booking appts out 6-7 months. My son is in constant pain everyday. Ive had 6 back surgeries all by neurosurgeons. 1 screwed me up 1 fixed the first ones screw ups. So i definitely understand. After talking with the ortho surgeon i do feel a little bit better about him doing it bc he said all he will be touching is the bone. They avoid all the disc and nerves. We havent fully made the decision. I wish i could find someone who has had it done.Its such a hard decision when its your child your dealing with. Thanks for commenting!
