I was 15 when I had extensive spine surgery performed by Dr. Lonstein. We were told he was the best, which may very well be true. However the only options he presented were essentially: have the surgery and live forever with rods spanning from T1-L3 to fix the problem, wear a brace for upwards of 20 hours a day to slow the problem, or do nothing and suffer the debilitation inevitably. Inow know that those are NOT the only options and regret every day having the surgery which I cannot undo.
