After wanting this for so long, I finally had my fusion surgery yesterday. I had scheuerman's kyphosis at about 85 degrees, and my doctor informed me today that the curve is now between 45-50 degrees. I just want to thank you all so much for your support and I couldn't be more grateful to have found this web forum. I was fused from T3-L1 and currently am managing my pain at the hospital with a button I press when I need some medicine. Getting out of bed has to be the hardest part so far, and standing up felt pretty weird. I also got fitted/a mold done today for a brace.

I know that everyone is different, but does anyone have any pointers/advice for a quicker recovery or things to do while recovering that helped you?

Once again, thank you all so much
