Yesterday we had Ryan's spine follow up. He is now at 51 degrees of curve and getting worse. In 18 months he has gone from 27 degrees to 51. We have put spinal fusion surgery on the schedule for May of 2018. It will be a 5 day inpatient stay followed by a six week home recovery (which is why we're scheduling it over the summer). If it keeps getting worse, Ryan would continue to have back pain and possibly compromise his organs. It is very common with Prader-Willi Syndrome. It's something we knew would likely happen just not when.
