    10 years post-op

    Hi everyone. It been 10 years in March since my scoliosis surgery. During those past 10 years a lot has happened in my life. I was appointed by the California governor to the California state council on Developmental Disabilities, had reconstructive foot surgery on my right foot. My grandma passed away of natural causes. I traveled to South Dakota to visit family and go to Mount Rushmore

    Kara! Thanks for coming back here and letting us know how you are doing. I think about you and how much you have contributed to the forum.

    I am sorry bout the loss of your grandma.

    It sounds like you are keeping busy and traveling. You are a fusion success story like both my daughters.

    I hope you come back here from time to time to let us know how you are doing.
