Post op 6 months!

Post op 6 months! Wow time flies when you're enjoying life. But then again, my operation kinda feels like a life time ago as well. Lol

So, lets recall back what happened in the last 6 months 
  1. I finally got my scoliosis operation done after putting it on hold for 12 years
  2. The first 2 months of recovery were really difficult
  3. The right side of my lumbar was so painful because they 'stretched' out my muscle after the operation
  4. My new best friend is my hot pack
  5. Some how I managed to pull my groin within the first month even though I was moving at slower than turtle speed.  
  6. Everyday I felt little improvements in my recovery
  7. My swimsuits are a little tighter now (thank goodness not my pants that feels tighter! Lol)
  8. I 'grew' 4.5 cm!!!
I'm really happy with my decision to have the operation and the results that I've gotten so far. And so, I present to you...*drum roll*... MY BATTLE SCAR!!! 

A 10 inch long scar running from T10-L4 right down the middle of my back. No more side curves. No more rib rotation. So much love and thanks to everyone who was there to help me before, during and after my operation. Special and BIG THANKS to my beloved mother too!!!

  1. THanks for sharing Cai Lin! Was googling on mild scoliosis as I'm thinking of getting something done after years of bearing with it, when yr blog came up as one of the search results. Fellow MSian here. Glad your recovery period has been fast and with good results :)
