While filming from her bed wearing a loose-fitting blue top and beanie, Natalie told fans she was “tired from walking, partly because her body ached doing that.”
The influencer said that with her lung still “partially collapsed,” she does breathing exercises and takes five walks around the house each day.
Natalie revealed the side effects of not being able to move as much and said she lost all muscle tone in her legs.

The Newcastle-born beauty was preparing for surgery last month to correct the curvature, which develops in about one in 15 Australian girls during puberty ages nine to 14.
In a previous video on her Instagram Stories, Natalie said she was both “excited and terrified at the same time” about the surgery.
Scoliosis is an abnormal curvature of the spine that typically develops during the growth spurt phase just before puberty.
While the condition, which is estimated to affect about three percent of teens worldwide, can be caused by conditions such as cerebral palsy and muscular dystrophy, the cause of most scoliosis is unknown.

What is scoliosis?
– According to healthline.com, it is the ‘abnormal curvature of the spine’
– Signs or symptoms of the condition, which comes in different forms, include back pain, uneven hips, different shoulder blade levels
– Treatments include a brace or surgery, depending on the age or condition of the condition
– Princess Eugenie was diagnosed with scoliosis as a child and had back surgery at age 12
– At her wedding in October 2018, she proudly showed her surgery scar
Most cases are mild and disappear naturally, but some spinal deformities worsen as children grow.
The most severe curves can drastically reduce the amount of space in the chest cavity, making it difficult to breathe.
One of the most famous names to have suffered from scoliosis, aside from Natalie Roser, is Queen Elizabeth II’s granddaughter, Princess Eugenie, who was diagnosed at age 11.
Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson’s daughter underwent corrective surgery a year later and used the resulting scar as inspiration for the design of her wedding dress.
