I am 66 yr old woman having 8-12 hr surgery to correct severe scoliosis. I am aware that this is going to be quite the challenge but right now I cannot stand or walk for longer than 5-10 minutes so quality of life is diminished. I'm able to work as receptionist so I have my awesome health insurance. My husband is self employed so he will be able to juggle his schedule to be with me as I need him. We are traveling 5 hrs to the "big city" with the fancy hospital and best doctors and I am thrilled with my surgeon. Is there anyone else out there looking for a November Surgery Buddy?
