Re: Exciting news

I don't know how far out from Dallas it will be seen. So many people travel here for this hospital, so maybe it will reach out of Texas. I'm sure I'll find out soon. They're e-mailing me more details...

Re: hi new

I agree with bluestone. You should definitely keep an eye out on your kids as they're growing.

Re: some pre-surgery questions

Hello Jerseygirl,

As for your...

Re: Idiopathic scoliosis and middle age

My mother had the surgery in her 50s. I just had mine earlier this year in my mid 20s. She had an "s" curve, each in the 50 or 60-degree range, I believe (I just tried calling her to confirm, but she...

Re: rib swelling

I didn't have a rib removed with my surgery, but my mom did with hers. She said that it's the one incision that still is sensitive to touch (her surgery was about 10 years ago). It doesn't bother her...

Re: Your First Experience of Hospital

This has been said on here before, but I just want to reiterate the importance of asking for help from the nurses/doctors in the hospital.

If you're in pain, let them know. Ask for painkillers,...

Re: 6/7 weeks after surgery

Simon,

I haven't been through surgery yet, so I don't have any good advice to give you. I am thinking about you, though, and am hoping that you will feel much better soon.

xoxo,
