Scoliosis Surgery, 10 Years Later

In the early morning hours of July 26, 2001, I went to the University of Virgina Medical Center to undergo corrective surgery for scoliosis. Even though I started blogging a year later, it wasn’t until three years had passed that I decided to write a series of four posts to chronicle the experience as I remembered it. Today, on the 10th anniversary of my surgery, I’m linking to them again.

Part 1: My History, Pre-Surgery
Part 2: Surgery and the Hospital
Part 3: After the Surgery
Part 4: Three Years Later

I’m always happy to answer additional questions if anyone has them.


  1. Yay for 10 years!

  2. Wow! I knew it was a long time ago…but 10 years! I miss the time in our lives when we were very young and living together. I wish I had to do all over again so I could enjoy it more and make the most of every second! Love you sis!

  3. I had my scoliosis corrected seven years ago this summer. I loved reading your story (stumbled here from GenPink’s blogroll) and you’ve inspired me to blog my story.

  4. I have heard Scoliosis usually occurs in those older than 10 years and it also occurs in girls more than boys is it true.
