A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.
- What type of spinal curvature?:
- Had surgery?:
- More than one surgery at different times(tell us more in the next field)
- Surgery Details:
- I've had 20+ operations since the age of 7as I had a growing rod that needed lengthening/changing every 6 months or so as i grew. Plus several complications along the way with rods breaking off the fixtures or snapping in half.
- Worn a brace?:
- Post-op other
- Bracing Details:
- I'm not sure of the official names of the braces I have worn post surgery as I was still quite young but I wore them for about 6 weeks anytime I was not lying down and they were merely protective not treatment for my curvature.
