My son is 14 yo and we are planning on scoliosis surgery. He has a 30 degree curve. He does have mimimal pulmonary deficits and early heart dysfunction(15%) left ventricle. As of today both cardio and Pulmonary said that he would be fine for surgery. I go for consult next week. I'm looking for any information on pre-surgery information, post-surgery recovery, special needs assistance, Relearning how to do ADL's will there be a need?
We have a vacation planned in mid to end October and I'm not sure if Brandon will be well enough to go. I'm also concerned if we wait until we come back November or even Christmas break could things worsen during that time (from now to Christmas which would make it more difficult, risky or even loose our opportunity for ithe surgery itself. Any information would be appreciative.
