Hello, I’m Matea and I am 28 years old. I had my scoliosis surgery in February 2018. Scoliosis has been with me all my life. The surgery was the right decision, even if the road to normal life was very hard and took a long time.
Today I work full time as a nurse. It took me about two years after surgery to feel fine. I have pain about twice a month but that’s okay. I have accepted that I am different, but my scoliosis does not stop me from doing whatever I feel like doing. Maybe a little different, but if we believe in it, we can do anything. Hot baths, thermal baths and Schroth exercises have helped me through my pain.
