Hi Brett, Have been following the progress. Sounds like she is doing extremely well. I think she is going to have a fantastic recovery. I was put on pain relief tablets on day two post-op as well. There is no stopping her now. Hope things continue to progress well with her recovery. Best wishes, RB

Thankyou everyone for your warm wishes.
Victoria is finally home and taking OxyContin for pain relief, as well as Nurofen liquid. At least now she is able to sleep through the night.
We were all very impressed with the Surgeon who did a fantastic job, if anyone would like to know his name please feel free to send private messages, as we cannot list them here. It has been a very rough road for us all, through no fault of our own. For others who are considering Scoliosis surgery I am more than happy to offer help or advice, as we all face the unknown and rely heavily on Doctors decisions, which as we have found can be very stressful.
The next few weeks will be hard for Victoria and her pain, but in time she will hopefully thank us for doing the Best we could.
Victoria gave the Surgeon a card which she wrote, thanks for fixing my back, you have changed my Life. ! He had a tear in his eye. Thankyou, Vics Dad. Brett

Hi Brett
With a Dad who cares as much as you do, I'm sure Victoria will have the best chance of making as pain free and full a recovery as humanly possible.
Hoping the journey continues in a more direct path from here.

So happy to hear you are home again and Victoria is doing well. It sounds like she has settled in...being able to sleep an entire night is a very good start!

Keep in touch, and say hi to Victoria.
