Recovery a few days after surgery was quick and almost painless. Two months later I hardly even remembered that she had had surgery. My life before the surgery was normal as long as I didn’t show my chest. In the summer I was stressed because they invited me to a friend’s house and they have a swimming pool; sometimes he didn’t go for the same thing, explaining why he always wore a shirt. Also, she couldn’t run much for fear of making her heart race too fast and she felt a bit of pressure.
Before the operation he had a very pronounced sag in his chest, his scapulae were very pronounced and he had a very stooped posture. I had considered having surgery before learning about Pectus Up. I decided to have Pectus Up surgery because it was the least invasive option.
The balance I make of the experience is globally excellent. When they told us about the new surgical technique, it gave me some peace of mind. I had to wait almost two years before the operation while the corresponding permits were approved in my Community. Although I was looking forward to turning the page and having surgery, my parents and I decided to wait. Looking at the time, it was a total success.
