Scoliosis Surgery Follow Up

Today Noah had his three month follow up with the surgeon who did his Scoliosis surgery. It went super well! They did x-rays again (the first since the surgery) so that he could see the changes between now and before surgery. Before surgery Noah's curve was 96.3 degrees. Today it was..... (drum roll please!) 11.9 degrees! The doctor showed us the before and after x-rays and the difference was just SO amazing! He is very, very pleased with Noah's progress.

There have been a couple of instances in which Noah is having a little bit of pain. I was a smidge concerned but he assured me that it is normal and that Noah could have bouts of pain here and there for up to a year after the surgery. I have been giving him Tyenol when he has pain and the doctor said that was the right thing to do.

It was one of the best doctor's appointments we've had!
