I h ave thought about this for years and it is getting progressively worse and feel that the longer I wait the chances are slimmer. I guess, the only thing that really gets me excited is the possibility of loosing weight.:

I am going June 10 or 11. Very scary, but as you said it gets progressively worse. Good luck!

Congratulations Susan and Janet on getting your surgery dates - I know how scared you are both feeling right now. I felt the worse part was the weeks prior, and then it was so weird - a couple of days before surgery I suddenly got this beautiful feeling of calmness come over me, and it stayed with me right up until the few moments before surgery. I then had a little cry of nervousness before I got my happy drugs through the IV, but then I was fine again, and then before I knew it, I was awake and all was done :). Our minds can make us so nervous, but it's just the thoughts in our heads that make us scared, but the reality of it all is really not that bad. I hated the thought of being away from my sons, but it all went so fast, and before I knew it I was home again with my boys. Unfortunately I've had some pain in my leg for the last few weeks, but I think I may be turning a corner now, and things may be easing up here (keeping my fingers crossed), either way I know all in good time the pain will ease off. The best part once you get through this, you look in the mirror and it feels great to see yourself looking straight, and it feels great to hear your family and friends tell you how much taller you look, and to know that you don't have to worry about what your future holds anymore with having scoliosis and what it will do to your heart and lungs etc. So - it's all good - having this surgery behind you will be the best thing EVER! You will be in my thoughts and prayers!
