Hi! I'm Yogie I had my scoliosis (70 degress now 40 degress) surgery in 1998 I was 37 years old then. It took me one year to fully recover. A few years after the surgery, all went well. I was able to perform my everyday task and even engaged in sports (volleyball and badminton). However, I experienced occasional pain on the cervical and thoraco-lumbar area, and then lately since 2011 the pain became persistent. There are times that I had to be in bed 2 to 3 times in a month. Today, I went for a follow-up check up with the Ortho doctor, hoping to find solution. I was thinking of using a body jacket to relieve the pain aside from the pain killers. I am not sure if this will help.
