Since the beginning of the treatment, the doctor said I would be able to live normally.

I lost control of both my legs after a direct impact with water. About 10 days after back surgery, a doctor told me to get up and walk, and I did it.

I thought I was becoming paralyzed. The doctor treated me with a bone cement injection and used some screws to stabilize the bone. Now I can walk well.

I’d had back pain for a long time which also spread down to my legs. I was scared but I decided to go see the doctor. The examination showed that I had scoliosis and surgery was required.
