Yes: For spinal stenosis patients, walking is ok but maybe more difficult. Neurogenic claudication (buttock and leg pain/weakness) from spinal stenosis is often positional. Symptoms are typically worse when standing because the spine is extended, resulting in slightly more stenosis. Exercises where the spine is flexed, such as biking, typically lessen symptoms and may be more comfortable.

Different purposes: In scoliosis surgery, the first rod placed during surgery is often used to perform the majority of curve correction, while the second rod is used to reinforce the first after the majority of correction is performed. Thus, the two rods may have different shapes at the conclusion of surgery. Also, due to slight variations in screw placement, the two rods often differ slightly in final alignment.

Rarely: Most previously placed thoracolumbar spinal implants are readily accessible from a posterior surgical approach. There are only a handful of scenarios in which an anterior approach is preferred in the thoracolumbar spine. Be sure that your surgeon has clearly explained the thought process behind recommendations prior to surgery. A second opinion may also be a good idea for any major surgery.
