At 6 weeks post op, my scar was still pretty red and sore and my back was still swollen. I remember I still found it painful to wear a bra at this point.

At around 5 months post op, my scar turned a kind of purple colour. I remember being a bit worried that it would stay like this as it looked pretty noticeable. I needn’t have worried though, as it soon faded pretty nicely. After 1 year post op, it was barely visible (see below picture).

Bio Oil can be really helpful for improving the appearance of your scar. I use it on my scar and I think it really does help. Although I would say wait until the scar has healed fully before using it 🙂

I had scoliosis surgery in 2010 and blog about my experiences living with scoliosis. My aim is to raise awareness of scoliosis and help and inspire others with the condition.
