Hi Kaitlins Mum!

Hi Jo, good to 'read' from you again. I hope Alexandra cheers up soon. I make it thast she is about 7 weeks post-op. I remember the eight week mark being a significant turning point for me. Hopefully going back to school should see her spirits lift. Does she still have a 10minute time limit for sitting? I found the more i sat down the worse i felt. Laying down or walking was the best for me. Hope she keeps on improving! Keep us posted.

Hello people,
I am Lauren and I had my wonderful surgery on December the 5th. I am quite good except for that I get spams of pain. I really want to talk to Gabby but we couldn't find her phone number for a while. I have a backpack which seems to get really heavy but I'm not sure how any why. Sometimes I feel really lonely because none of my friends really can get how I felt about the surgery and comprehend how massive the surgery was. I hope all is well with the others whom had surgery and sometimes I wish I was still in hospital because then I could walk to see Gabby

Hi Lauren, sorry to read that you are a little glum. Hopefully Gabby pops up somewhere on the forum. In the meantime, if you wnt to talk to someone about your experience, just pour your heart out on the forums. I'm sure we can all give you a little 'pick me up'. so long as you don't mind adults chiming in! To me whether you're a child,adol or adult, surgery is all the same - only that kids heal faster! Cheer up Lauren! Positive thoughts = positive outcomes!
Best wishes

Question Re: Hi Everyone

I'm curious does anyone who have had the surgery get the spasms of pain? Like someone is stabbing you in the back with a knife? I get it at school and the chairs are really not helping. Lying on the ground helps but then I look like a hobo. Any suggestions?

Most patients of scoli surgery seem to get muscle spasms and there is medication (Lyrica being one) that helps to control these. I think they disappear with time. I did not get any spasms so I'm no expert, but I am sure your surgeon or GP can help you with those painful spasms.

I heard a few times from Gabby's Mum but my last email went unanswered so I am also wondering how she is. Let's hope she's well and just getting on with life since recovering.

We are in limbo at the moment, just playing the waiting game until we have our specialists appointment then we will know more about which path we will be taking.
I have been looking into scoliosis awareness in Australia and I haven't found much information. This forum is great for getting information and comfort from others on the same journey.
I do wish there would be more information readily available though & considering kids are developing earlier maybe awareness should start before yr 7. Just my humble opionion.
Warm wishes Jo

This is the American Scoliosis forum: http://www.scoliosis.org/forum/index.php

There are kids' forums and adult forums. You can do a search for useful information and if you join up, you can ask questions of their hundreds (probably thousands) of members. If I'm breaking any rules, please just delete, moderator.
