Re: one week post op!

Ugh I remember the feeling like I'd been hit by a bus (more like a ten ton truck!) so well. Waking up was horrendous for a few weeks but it will gradually ease off. As Jay said you've had one of the...

Re: Scolosis Surgery purely for cosmetic reasons?

A good surgeon wouldn't do this surgery purely for cosmetic reasons, any good surgeon will always tell you that its done primarily to stop progression.
