I am now 67. My surgery was done over 50 years ago in Toronto by  to correct my 65 degree angle (s curve). Rods and hooks were inserted, bone taken from my right hip: was bedridden 4 months and couldn't even stand up after. Learned how to walk again. All this time, if I did something that i shouldn't, I suffered from it.
Can't bend over much any more. Rainy or very windy weather affects me. Both hips sometimes very painful. Am currently trying a 'far infrared heating pad' with small 60 jade stones to see if it helps. I walk a lot but still have much stiffness, weak hips and pain. Don't want to take a great deal of painkillers because they are hard on the liver. I try to keep my weight down. Hard at 67.
Went through a lot of emotional stuff due to 'looking stiff and different'. Am so happy to share and read other comments.God bless all of us. Elizabeth
