As a Physical Therapist student in his Third Year, this is fucking coolio. I know a couple of people who have screws in their backs, and even more who are in braces. My girl has had her scoliosis for three years. C-curve with about 25 - 30 degrees of left sided curving. She had to wear a brace for two years under really loose shirts until she got tired of having a plastic deathtrap strapped to her Torso for most of the day. To cheer her up, I looked up the worst scoliosis jokes ever.

"HEY. I HEARD THIS JOKE ABOUT SCOLIOSIS, ABOUT A WEAK BACK... BUT I DON'T THINK I SHOULD TELL YOU. IT SEEMS OUT OF LINE."

Not to be creepy, but if you had any more pictures of them xrays I'd be stoked to see them... For research.

Wish you the best, and those screws look metal as fuck.

Heres my album over eveything I've got! Plus a gore shot of my opened back haha.
imgur.com/a/6h2FY

I had two curves, one was 80 (above) the other was 60 (below). They countered each other out and left my head perfectly aligned over my hips, so I actually never felt anything. But it was progressing approx 2 degrees a year, which at age 40 would give me a 120 degree curve above and an 80 degree curve below, virtually crushing my organs (sorta). It definitely affected m breathing. My surgeon was quite perplexed and ended up having to screw the rods into every vertebra and fusing them, where as normally they only do smaller amount to retain as much flexibility as possible but in my case I had no choice but to infuse like 90% of my spine. I still have to get the very bottom three fused eventually.

As far as jokes go, I love them, as well as jokingly throwing out the handicap card haha. Anytime someone swats me or punches me lightly I start yelling they're beating up a cripple. When i got diagnosed my brother came up to me and pushed down on my shoulders seeing if I was spring loaded. I got a pretty good laugh out of all the jokes truth be told, I don't like taking that stuff 100% serious all the time. Ill be serious when needed to, but the rest of the time, have at it.

Tell them I have about 50 times over. Also stapled myself at least 100 times. It usually confuses them.

Seriously though that's pretty crazy. Are those things permanent or can they be removed eventually?
User avatar
#135 - bknob (03/05/2016) [-]
Permanent, it would be pointless to try remove them because they main thing they're preventing is my spine bending, which is already going to be covered by my now fused spine. Removing it wouldn't accomplish anything except for putting me at risk and needing more surgery. It doesnt hurt anything having them though so it's not big deal; they dot even go off in metal detectors. If you're curious as to why I have them, its because they basically act as an internal cast while the bone fuses/heals, instead of an external body cast which prevents me from moving for 9 months (the time in which it took for it to heal)

My cousin had that. Didn't actually feel bad for him though. I hope you're recovering well and that you're not him.
User avatar
#129 - bknob (03/05/2016) [-]
Mine didn't feel bad either actually, I had a weird case where i had two curves and they countered each other. The pain comes from your head not being aligned with your hips and mine was almost perfect. My issue was more so the fact in 20 years it would progress to a state it would arguably crush my lungs and I already had breathing problems.

#59 - samsaysbai (03/04/2016) [-]
I know its a dumb question but will you ever be able to bend with out it hurting or is it a permanent thing?
User avatar
#128 - bknob (03/05/2016) [-]
Nah man, not dumb, in fact a ton of people have difficulty grasping that concept. I will never bend my spine anywhere between my neck and hips again. I have my vertebrae fused into one essential bone. Imagine trying to bend your forearm, haha, you can't. Also, theres two titanium rods in there that also dont bend.

I was worried it would put me at risk for accidents, but my doctor basically said if i was in a car accident that my spine would be fine, but my neck and hips would be screwed. It puts all the compression and pressure onto two points as opposed to being even distributed through the entire spine. Makes sitting and standing for long periods difficult as well as bending. To give an idea, I can't tie up my shoes anymore because I cant reach.

Not the biggest deal in the world though. It was progressing so bad that by the time I'm 40 it would have been a 120 degree angle up top, virtually crush my lungs. I'd be in a much worse place without the surgery than with it. Surgeries just fix one big life threatening problem while introducing smaller annoying but livable ones.

Hope that makes sense! if you have any other questions im always willing to answer!

#137 - samsaysbai (03/05/2016) [-]
Oh okay I see it mustt be difficult and just quick question do you really carry a photo of your spine around just to get angry people to calm down? Also what kinda jobs are you able to work?
User avatar
#138 - bknob (03/05/2016) [-]
It's not a literal photo, its just a photo on my phone. Lots of people ask to see the pictures so I keep them on my phone basically.

And basically any that isn't heavy lifting or puts a lot of pressure on my back. Even running is difficult to give you an idea. I'm a graphic designer, so I'm fine on that front haha. But it's definitely a consideration to take in when applying.

looks like that surgery even made you lose weight, and get a tan!

I lost about 20 pounds - didnt eat much for two weeks while in the hospital. Tanning is lightning, im pasty as fuck. If anything these photos are flattering lol.

Turns out spinal surgery is good for weight loss.
