Default Thank you! Post- op- Scoliosis Video

Hey guys again

Firstly just wanted to say that you are all amazing- I couldn't have done this without you guys and it's only 3 weeks post op! This is a fantastic forum and everyone is so supportive now I think I've been through the roughest parts so if anyone wants any advice (the other way around I know) just message me and I'm more than happy to help- whether that be to normalise things, tell you my experiences, advice with pre/post op feelings or just listen! Im open I know a lot of other people have created videos about their scoliosis journey and I can tell you that it is one thing that really got me through, watching other peoples journey on YouTube so I got an idea of what I was about to go through! Im feeling great now, just a few ups and downs but Im so happy that im straight- even inch of pain is worth it.

If anyone thinks that watching a video may help, I just uploaded one onto YouTube because I wanted to keep a record and hopefully help people feel more normal after they've seen it. I don't know if its any good, but if you are interested, the link is:

OR if it doesn't work,

Thanks guys,
Meags

The direct link doesn't work for some reason... So copy it and paste it in the URL line in a new tab, then it should work xoxo

Great video, it was a relief to see that you looked so good so quick, my 12 year old daughter is having her operation next week and we are all a little nervous

Thanks guys - means a lot!

And Karen seriously don't worry! I was heaps more scared before the op than I actually was on the day or even after- there are ups and downs but I'm sure your daughter will be fine really quickly.Every step of the way is worth the end result. IN fact, her recovery should be quicker because she is younger!

Thoughts are with you! xx

Meaghan, do I have your permission to post a link to your video on the American forum? As you can understand, those facing this surgery get a lot from these videos. No problem if you'd prefer not!
