Scoliosis Warrior Diarmuid tells how meeting other children with scoliosis helped him feel less alone
I had my surgery in November 2019 in the National Orthopaedic Hospital Cappagh and it has honestly given me a new lease of life. During my treatment, I met some other teenagers with scoliosis at the Straight2Swimming Scoliosis swimming group in the Curragh Camp. It was reassuring to see others who had scoliosis. It showed me how you can still get on with your life with this condition and it showed me that I was not alone.
I want to let other kids with scoliosis and their parents know that even if you have scoliosis and need a brace and/or surgery, that there are amazing people out there that can help you with your condition and improve your life for the better.
