Hello all!

My name is Jody... I am a 28-year-old female living in South Carolina in the United States with Kypho-scoliosis. I had many corrective surgeries throughout my school age years but nothing since then. I am hoping to have more surgery in the future though.

I work at a newspaper as an editorial assistant. I enjoy going out, good converstaions, and meeting new people.

I have a website that tells more about me and I post pictures and fun events in my life.


Its been great to get involved with this online support community.

Till later!!! Jody

Welcome Jody to SSO :welcome2:
We'd love to hear your story.
I'm 38 and live in Dublin (Ireland). I'm married to Jonathan and have one daughter who will be five in December. I had a fusion in 1979 and harrington rods inserted for a 100 degree plus double curve. I have no back pain but do have fairly restricted lung capacity (less than 50%) as a result of my scoliosis. Love your website. :-)

Hi Jody! Welcome to SSO. I went to your website... lots of pictures! What kind of surgery are you hoping to have? What have you had so far? I'm in the process of getting an evaluation to have revision surgery.

My story is here (http://www.scoliosis-support.org/modules/ipboard/index.php?s=&act=ST&f=11&t=390&st=0#entry9742) (regarding scoliosis) ...and here (http://www.scoliosis-support.org/modules/ipboard/index.php?s=&showtopic=358) (nocturnal hypoventilation), and my Xray (http://www.scoliosis-support.org/modules/myalbum/viewcat.php?cid=10) is here.
