After 2 back ops, 2 Harrington rods and a couple of fusions later, my spinal curvature has remained stable for some years now.
Working / Worked
My curvature was corrected in March of 1994, though my spine still has a signifigant curve. I was allowed to resume normal activity, and was doing well until May of 2007. I began to experience severe pain in my lower back and right hip, which quickly became demobilizing and unbearable.

Had surgery during the summer of '09. I got two rods put in and a year later I am having no problems with my scoliosis.
