Hey! I am 6months post op. When I went into surgery on Sep. 17th I was at 109 degrees. When I came out with 2 rods and 20 screws I was at a 62 degree. 4 months later I was at a 70 degree and now 6 months post op and I am at an 85 degree. My doctor says he has NEVER had a patient BEND their Titanum rods? He is going to be checking in with several other doctors across the U.S. to see if they have experienced this.

nope.....will check in with him in June and see my doc in July. He is consulting with one of the docs in St. Louis, one in California and one in VA. In the mean time he told me to go ahead and apply for disablity. I will for sure have to have another surgery just not sure when and where yet.
