I am a 25 yr old from PA and was recently told i would need a rib/sternem fusion and a spine fusion due to repeated rib disloctions and severe back pain from a hypermobile spine and severe back pain. I was diagnosed with HEDS 2 yrs ago and have already had leg surgeries and rods inserted. If anyone has any info on fusions with their experience and recovery please let me know...thanx for the help!!! ...Kaitlyn
Welcome to the HMSA
(perhaps you could introduce yourself in the relevant section???).
There is a thread here
about spinal fusion (specifically about healing afterwards). So far there doesn't appear to be a thread about rib fusion.
