If you are facing surgery, please feel free to contact me. I've had three scoliosis surgeries, including a hardware removal, and I have some good suggestions regarding planning for your surgery, recovery, speaking to your spinal surgeon,
what it feels like afterwards, and how to recover step by step. I can e-mail this to you.
These are things that only people that have been through it can know. Knowing the right questions to ask your surgeon is important, and being prepared in advance can make all the difference. We should help others to manage their surgery sucessfully, and I'm happy to help. Please e-mail me directly.
