Unsure of it all as I havent seen anyone today as they're all at another hospital today. But I know that it has given me some correction as my ribs at the front protrude less now and also someone on the ward has said I stand straighter now Because of it. I don't know if I will need to wear it after surgery, as they haven't said anything abut doing so.

So I popped in to see Jay yesterday at 6pm but he was still in theatre, so went back today and found him in intensive care looking pretty good and being well cared-for, and he headed back to the ward this afternoon! He's in a lot of pain at the moment but he's looking remarkably straight and well-balanced and seems to be optimistic. His surgeon was very pleased. The halo has gone but he's had a lot of comments that it's made a noticeable difference just over the last week.

I'm sure he'll be able to update you himself soon enough!

Thanks Jonny! Great to hear that it looks like he's had a good correction, but I hope his pain is being managed okay. Really glad he's had his halo removed under anaesthetic too.
