dextroscoliosis/levoscoliosis – thoracic spine
i’ve had 7 back surgeries in the past 3 years. while unpacking a box this week, I found a 1995 x-ray report saying I had (in addtn to other probs) a dextroscoliosis noted with apex at t8-9 with compensatory levoscoliosis with apex at t4-5. what does this mean, and could this be why I have severe pain in the thoracic area now? my neurosurgeon said there was a “growth” somewhere in the thoracic area recently, but that it didn’t seem to be growing. thanks. wanda k.
