Has anyone had “Pisa syndrome”(leaning to the side) and then had the deep brain stimulation surgery? If so what effect did the surgery have on the leaning? I’ve had PD for six plus years, and heretofore had only minor symptoms, including no tremors. Then, about six months ago, I developed this “list” to the right along with considerable pain. This occurred practically overnight. In attempting to overcome this, I’ve tried physical therapy, medication changes, chiropractic, botox and a few more, all to no avail. I’m now scheduled for DBS (very shortly) but am fearful it may be a waste, and impose unnecessary risks. I’d like to hear from anyone with similar experience.
