Before surgery, I used to do aerobics quite regularly but it’s only really very recently that I’ve felt like I’m able to do this kind of activity again, and I’m now 2 years post op.
I have really missed doing aerobics for the past couple of years and was a bit anxious about getting back into it again as it’s been so long and I was worried if I’d be able to do it – at many points during recovery I thought I’d never do it again!
I’ve really enjoyed the Zumba classes though. Yes, there are certain moves I can’t do that involve bending the back, but I just do my own adapted version of the moves. It’s still fun exercise!
I’m just eternally grateful that, after 2 years, I’m able to do these kind of activities again and I’ll never take anything for granted again.
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.
