My Scoliosis/Surgery Recovery | I've got a date!

It was only a couple of weeks ago that I had my pre op and I came out of it with the impression that it would be maybe a few months before I had my operation. Yesterday though I had some pretty exciting news! We phoned the hospital to see if I'd been given a date yet, they said no but managed to find a slot on the 17th of September! I expected them to say it would be a few months, not a few weeks.

I am so over the moon! I'll be going into hospital on the 16th of September and having the operation on the 17th. I found out at the pre op that I could be in hospital for up to 5 days so I've already got some guest posters lined up and I've started planning posts for September and October for whilst I'm recovering.

That's the only thing I wanted to talk about in this post, it's pretty big news though so it definitely deserves its own post! I'm so happy to finally have a date, I feel like there is a light at the end of the tunnel now, hopefully I'll be back to some kind of normality by Christmas! Unfortunately it can take up to 12 weeks for the surgery to make a difference pain wise as nerves take a while to recover, I'm hoping for some immediate relief though, we'll just have to wait and see!

It's about time I said goodbye to this pesky little screw!
