Default Re: Tell me a little bit about Post-op for Scoliosis?

When I was close to getting my surgery, I was told that the immediate post op pain was 'unbearable'; however, you are given lots of painkillers! In fact, I barely remember any of my week in hospital or the 6 weeks recovery!
Nowadays, I hardly ever get pain, only if I twist too extremely! And even then it's not pain, just discomfort.
The hump on your ribs should go away if they operate on them which is always a bonus. Actually, that's one of the only things I do remember: for the first week, your ribs tend to click when you breathe haha!
But apart from that it's just a great surgery and the pain afterwards is virtually non-existent in comparison to what a lot of people feel pre-op! x
