    I almost had surgery for it. They said that recovery would be around a year, and i wasnt able to have a backpack on thats more then 1 pound. But it could have changed sense when i was told that was 7years ago.

    I had mine over 15 years ago and it took me about 3 months to recover but I wasn’t able to play any contact sports or play golf for a year.

    I was diagnosed scoliosis and was told if I didn't have surgery I'd be in a wheelchair within 2 years I had the surgery resulting in 28 screws and 2 metal plates being applied to my back .I struggle alot with walking differently and wears me out I use to walk approx 5 miles every other day. I do good now to make it a block I miss the younger days of my life for sure Good luck and best wishes
