My 16 year old son has had major surgery in the last two summers. He's due more surgery next year , you'd never know to look at him apart from some scars on his abdomen but im constantly having to reassuring him hourly daily weekly about his health and appearance (he's also got scoliosis)I feel worn out and just seem to be repeating myself to no good effect. Any advice to boost his self image / esteem .

This sounds so tough on both of you. Is there anyway he could meet other children who have been through similar surgery? Really hoping it goes well.

Our local CAMHS has a service for children who have physical health conditions so you could check yours to see if they have anything similar.
