Can I go sky diving after having scoliosis surgery?
Patient :I got scoliosis surgery last year when I was 14, and now i'm 15. (I got screws and rods in my back) I have been planning to go sky diving for my 18th birthday for a LONG time and I was wondering if it's still possible I can do that. Thankfully everything is going perfect, I go to all my check ups and now I have them once a year instead of every 4 months. Also, the wound has healed perfectly and is a light pink scar now. I can touch my toes, jump, run, do everything after just one year! Just wanted to let you know that. Also I put the category as back pain even though I don't have any back pain but I didn't know what field this question would go in.
