Before and after. I have a beautiful, straight, new spine!

12 hours of surgery, but my spine is straight and beautiful. I can walk without the aid of a walker, but I do become fatigued easily and have to take naps sometimes. I do my own chores and enjoy not being crippled anymore. I have skin pain on my buttocks, hips, and outer thighs, but it will vanish in time. Also, without my bracer, the top of my back fatigues easily. Other than that, I know this surgery was the one I have waited for and needed all my life. I was so deformed!

Hi there!

The spine normally has a slight curvature to support the body weight and for adequate functioning. It may take some time to adjust to the new balance and improve the muscle strength. This would gradually improve with time and adequate physiotherapy.
Wish you a speedy recovery!

Take care!
