I am 22-years-old and found out in December that I have severe osteoporosis due to taking omeprazole for acid reflux for two years. I have since stopped the medication and have continued taking calcium and vitamin D.
I also have severe scoliosis. I found out that my curvature increased from 38 to 50 degrees in five years and my doctor now wants me to have the scoliosis rod surgery.
I was just wondering if anyone here knows anything about any of the topics I have discussed. At first I thought the surgery would be a good thing because my back will be stronger with the rods; however, now I am worried that the insertion of the rods will cause the actual bone to crumble and I will be left disabled for life :(
If anyone could ease my worries or give me advice, I'd appreciate it!
