    5.5 years post-op

    Hey everyone I haven't posted in a long time. Well I'm now 5.5 years postoperative from my scoliosis surgery. I'm been really sick with bronchitis, ear infections and sinus infection. But my back has been fine

    Hi Kara,

    That's amazing it has been 5.5 years already! I'm glad your back is fine. I hope you're feeling better now. How is your foot these days? I hope it healed up well.

    Take care, I hope you can enjoy some Indian summer weather.
