A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.
- What type of spinal curvature?:
- Juvenile Idiopathic Scoliosis
- Diagnosis Details:
- Diagnosed at age 9 & 11. Doctors recommended bracing. Parents decided against any intervention, based on the fact that "all my father's family have bendy sort of spines and have coped perfectly well". At age 22 the hurty bits got too much so decided I'd wander off to a doctor again - given the option of C-D Instrumentation/major fusion or a wheelchair before 30. Chose the surgery.
- What curve pattern?:
- Double major
- Curve Pattern Details:
- S Curve: 62.5 top, 67.5 bottom
Severe rotation and associated problems with lung function etc.
Fusion T4 - L3
