I'd love a set of implants but...

Unfortunately, I have scoliosis. You know, the kind that makes my
back look about like the illustration here:

So I've got an appointment with the orthopedic surgeon guy. Not
this one, one at UAB. And I think I may have to have the following
yucky procedure:

Yucky Procedure

Again, not with the doctor at the website above, he just gives a good
illustration of the procedure. Its crazy, you really can't tell my back
is so fucked up if you don't see the x-ray. But the stress of extra lbs
in front probably wouldn't be helpful. So I guess the implants are
going to have to wait.

I am REALLY not looking forward to this surgery but then again
I'm really not looking forward to putting any more stress on the
discs in my back that hurt either.

My parents claim they never noticed the problem when I was grow-
ing up. Really? You never noticed I was turning into a hunchback?

I am going to be a HUGE whiney baby if/when I get this done. I'm just warning everyone now. And my mama is DEFINITELY going to have to come take care of me.

I know. What's up with that?

Ha! Check this out, it's going to be HYSTERICAL - Bet they'll wish they took a raincheck on that "original sin" after this one!
