scoliosisstory **update**Today I went to my General doctor were doing blood tests! Were not really sure what is going on at this point I just have to wait for my blood test results! :) I also went to PT .. I have a new physical therapist who is specialized in scoliosis and he has a great plan set up for me and my case! I'm excited to start working with him so I can strengthen my body! My rods in my spine have really been irritating my body.. My body has never really done good with hardware.. So were seeing my surgeon in September! :) Thank you all so much for your continued support! #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #spinesurgery #back #curvy #curved #crooked #hospital #pain #hard #painful #surgery #scar #beautiful #battlescar #backbrace #brace #scoliosisstory #fusion #spinalfusion #recovery #doctor #medication 14h

  •   dgbellababy123 I know u have had multiple spine surgeries. I've heard mix reviews on how the second surgery is worse. I'm kind of nervous about this one because of that. I have a 3 year old to take care of and I don't know if I should ask for all the help I can get. @scoliosisstory 4d
  •   scoliosisstory For me personally the second surgery was definitely NOT as hard as the first! Because with your first surgery most of the hard work an lots of the pain on your spine has already been done.. So the revision didn't hurt as bad! It was still painful but definitely not as hard.. You will be in pain tho because with any surgery there is pain so you probably want to get help with your baby! @dgbellababy123 4d
  •   scoliosiscurves5678 I'm about to get my surgery (it's my first one) how bad is the pain? @scoliosisstory 4d
  •   scoliosisstory @scoliosiscurves5678 it's pretty bad.. But it gets easier and easier really quick! :) 4d

scoliosisstory "Do more of what makes you happy" this is not scoliosis related but sometimes I like to draw.. It's like an escape from reality! I did this drawing about a week ago! ️ never let an illness or disability get in the way of doing what makes you happy! ️ love you all! #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #spinesurgery #curved #crooked #hospital #painful #surgery #scar #scoliosisstory #fusion #spinalfusion #drawing #art 1w

scoliosisstory Love this quote! I found it on Pinterest and did my own edit of it! Sorry I have not posted for a little while! I have been having a lot of issues as far as fatigue, nausea, passing out, it hurts to breath because of my spine, and just not feeling well so we are going to my primary doctor on Thursday to figure out what is wrong! And I start physical therapy on the 21st! :) I hope you all are doing well, if you ever need anything just remember I am here to talk.. On a side note I'm 7 months post op from my 4th surgery(thanks to @no_fear_just_faith for reminding me haha:) #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #spinesurgery #back #curvy #curved #crooked #hospital #pain #hard #painful #surgery #scar #beautiful #battlescar #backbrace #brace #scoliosisstory #fusion #spinalfusion 1w

scoliosisstory Never lose hope.. Sometimes it's really hard to hold onto hope when everything seems to be going against you.. But hope is the one thing that can get you through anything!

scoliosisstory "May I live like the lotus, at ease in muddy water." Don't pray for an easy life.. Pray for the strength to endure this one.. I never thought I would live my life with chronic pain.. But after a while it just becomes apart of life.. Somehow you find the strength in each day to keep going. Always remember you are so much stronger than you think.. Never ever give up! Whatever life has to throw at you, you can handle it!

I love you all so much!

scoliosisstory "Speak Up For Scoliosis" ... Scoliosis needs more awareness. Not many people know what it is or how it affects the person who has it! So speak up for scoliosis and spread awareness!! @no_fear_just_faith Made an amazing YouTube video for scoliosis awareness I put the link in my bio, so you all can watch it!!:) #scoliosis #scoliosissurgery #spinesurgery #curved #crooked #hospital #pain #painful #surgery #scar #beautiful #battlescar #backbrace #brace #scoliosisstory #fusion #spinalfusion #speakupforscoliosis #scoliosisawareness 3w

scoliosisstory Bre (@no_fear_just_faith) here posting for Madi :) she wanted me to share this pic today & this is what she has to say about self confidence public!!♡♡ "I've heard so many stories of girls who don't wear their brace because they are afraid of being judged or because often times people stare... I know when I go out in public with my brace on I have people stare at me.. Sometimes they aren't nice about it either! They'll whisper, sometimes even point.. But I don't mind! I've had scoliosis since I was born.. It's just who I am so I never really felt different! Until I had to wear a brace after my 1st surgery.. I was mortified, I hid, I cried.. I yelled I hated the way I looked In a brace.. But as time went on and I went through 6 braces.. Now I'm on my 7th brace and I've gained this confidence, I love to show off my brace, I am PROUD of my scoliosis.. And how far I've come! So those of you who don't wear your brace because you are afraid of being judged.. Just keep your head up, smile, and ignore the stares! I promise you it will be better In the long run.. You are BEAUTIFUL with or without a brace.. Don't let other people bring you down because of something you cannot control! I love you all so much!!! " ️ Love, Madi (@scoliosisstory)

For me its a symbol of what I've gone through and I'm proud of it! From Tuesday-Saturday I will be gone camping but the amazing @no_fear_just_faith will post and keep my account going for me! ️ super nervous about going but hopefully it works out!
