For me, my back looks alot better than before but I don’t feel I look “normal.” I still don’t feel comfortable in certain clothes, I still feel very self concious most of the time and I still don’t like anyone seeing/touching my back.
I didn’t expect to feel this way after surgery and have received no guidance on how to deal with it. I don’t know if others feel this way after scoliosis surgery but for me this recovery is not just physical, it’s emotional aswell.
I had scoliosis surgery in 2010 and blog about my experiences living with scoliosis. My aim is to raise awareness of scoliosis and help and inspire others with the condition.
