    Started a scoliosis blog - Michigan

    Hi - this is a duplicate thread that I started in the first time surgery section, but thought I would post it in revision surgery and non-surgical as well. I haven't been on these sections much, but I do spend alot of time in the 1st time surgery section.

    Thought I would share a blog I created and have transitioned from being just about my surgery for family and friends, into a resource for others with adult scoliosis. I am aiming to focus on building a network of scoliosis adults in Michigan, especially the Lansing area. We have nothing that I have been able to find local or statewide that provides support. This forum does much of what a blog does, but I have found not everyone is comfortable with this large forum so I am sharing experience on the blog. I also posted a pre and post surgery picture.

    Hope to find some Michiganders out there.
