Disadvantages of fusion-less scoliosis

Hello everyone,

It feels like I haven't done a scoliosis blog post in a while, so I thought I would talk about some of the disadvantages of fusion-less scoliosis. I would be lying if I told you I never thought what my life and back would be like if I didn't have the fusion surgery.
However, after thinking about it for a while I know I made the right decision for me personally.
Having a spinal fusion is completely individual, your consultant can recommend the procedure, but at the end of the day it's you who decides whether to have it or not.
I had my spinal fusion surgery nearly 2 years ago now and I was really happy with my results. The procedure was 7 and a half hours long, but well worth it.
Spinal fusion is no walk in the park, but the results can be amazing. However, like any operation they are pros and cons. I had some nerve damage in my leg and numbness on my back, but I thought this was a small price to pay all things considered.

Having a spinal fusion not only improved the appearance of my back, but it also improved my quality of life. I cannot imagine what my back would be like if I hadn't of had the surgery.
Spinal fusion is scary and it can be risky. However, I couldn't imagine what my life would be like if I hadn't of had the procedure. I rarely experience back pain, I do get aches but I honestly don't care anymore. I am just so happy to be able to live a pain free life.






Scoliosis did change my life as cheesy as that sounds. Without the surgery I don't think I would be as aware and conscious of the world around me. Having scoliosis opened my eyes to things that I wasn't even aware of i.e. chronic pain. The surgery was the best option for me and I found a strength within myself that I didn't even know I had. Scoliosis shaped my personality and the person I am today.

I found the recovery difficult, but at the end of the day I am so happy that I did it and the results I received are honestly amazing.

If you are thinking of having the spinal fusion surgery I would recommend it. It will be hard, but it is well worth it and you will have a much more straight spine!!

Thank you for reading.
