Scoliosis Support

Loading Feed

Hello all! Just joined. I am 49 years old. I had scoliosis corrective surgery when I was 13 that involved a fusion from T12 to L3. I am extremely lucky and grateful to say that I enjoyed 30+ years of virtually no issues. But now some consequences are showing up. I developed pain in my hip as a result of decades of an asymmetrical gait and had a hip replacement 6 months ago. I have significant degeneration of the discs adjacent to my fusion—an expected complication. Fitness is an important part of my life. It is a stress reliever and coping mechanism. It is also now even more crucial that I keep moving because of the issues I mentioned. But I am discouraged by the compromises I now have to make to my workouts. Trying to balance gratitude for what I know is my extreme good fortune to have managed so well for most of my life with a sense of loss regarding my physical abilities. Looking for support and encouragement as I learn to accept these new limitations.

Hi - I'm a couple of weeks out from fusion S1-T10. I'm scared to death. I'm in my 70s, not in terrible shape but have lost lots of condition during the shut down due to an inability to walk much at all from stenosis. I'd love to hear your stories, tips, comments. Thanks!
