@frozenborderline It’s also unclear if any other people have had a full remission. Most people seem to need not just fusion, but often additional surgeries as well for things like additional instability, tethered cord, styloid removals, stents, etc. This is so complex, and hard to pin down what is coming from what. I’m so sorry for your struggles.
Several people have had full remission but you are right, it requires diagnosing and treating...everything. And a lot of PT.
