Is it 'typical' to have hip <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>and</span>
leg pain 9 years after my second scoliosis <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>surgery</span>
I had my first surgery
at age 13 and
the rods extended to L3 but my bottom curve (originally a S curve; don't remember degrees?) and
I began to experience pain as well as bulging of my upper right back/shoulder blade. So, in 2001, at age 18, I had my second scoliosis surgery
with the same doctor (very well known and
this time they replaced my old rods with Herrington rods from L1-L5.
