Race for Life!

Hi :) I'm Louise, I'm 27 and had scoliosis surgery In 2010. This blog provides an honest account of what I went through and how I now cope post scoliosis surgery. It's a work in progress but hopefully will provide help, advice and information on how a 20 something girl lives life with scoliosis.
