Re: Thread to help others -what to expect post op

I couldn't put it any better than Ed :)

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?

I have to correct bobashek because for me I have got restriction within my thoracic area and you do use that area-you lean forwards and you lean over and I find that restrictive and painful. I had a...

I hope your...

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.

I was very lucky because my surgeon offered me...

Re: New and would value some opinions...

All the pains you describe I had before my surgery and although I have pain still its much more bearable and not as debilitating. I can certainly shop for longer than I could before so that's a bonus...

Re: New and would value some opinions...

Hi and :welcome:

I had my surgery on a 72 degree curve when I was...

Re: 3-Month Post-op Update
