    I have one that Dr. Hu gave me from UCSF. I will try to find it. It includes lots of activities.

    Hi Tamena...

    Dr. Hu and I developed a document about recovering from scoli surgery. It was done many years ago, and I think it's all probably too conservative now. If you'd (or anyone else) would like a copy, send an email to me at lindaracine @gmail.com. (The pdf is too large to upload here.)

    You should always check with your own surgeon before embarking on activities.
