    I am sorry your daughter very young....has needed to endure such a procedure and enduring such pain.

    You have come to a very good site with wealth of info. .....on this site, upper right on page, can be useful, also.
    Typing in your concerns may lead you to informative older posts, article and videos.
    All is presented in an every person kind of language. This may be helpful to you.

    My mind is drawing quite a blank right now. Would you please tell me what...... ME means?

    How long ago did Chloe have her fusion done?

    A little bit more detail on symptoms first noticed, other treatments tried...may be helpful in finding members who can relate and respond to your post.
    When hospital suggested hot tub, how did your daughter respond? Any relief?
    Is your daughter being followed up with pain management during her transition post op?

    You are a good mom, reaching out for how to best care for Chloe. It difficult to watch child suffering when you want nothing more than to relieve her pain..taking it upon yourself if you were able. I know.

    We are here to support both of you in any way we can. Please let us know how you are doing. You are not alone.

    Please keep us posted on how Chloe is doing.
