Sierra's Back Pictures

My daughter had 2 spine surgeries recently to fix her scoliosis and she is doing's still a long recovery but each day I see improvements. I wanted to share with you all the side by side pictures of her spine before and after for comparison.

This first one is her back before surgery and then one after.

Big difference huh? Of course she has lost about 20lbs. since the first pic was taken but look at the shoulders, she actually has shoulders. And she has the v look instead of the curved, pinched look now.

These next ones are xrays before and after:

This last one is just a picture of the scar she has on the side. They went in through her front side to take out a rib and a disc and then the following week they went in through her back to do the big surgery. This is why she had two surgeries.
