Upper thoracic scoliosis around 100 degrees with a compensatory lumber curve
What curve pattern?:
Primary thoracic with one or more compensatory curves
Had surgery?:
Anterior/Posterior surgery in one surgery
Surgery Details:
not sure whether anterior or posterior. so long ago
Bracing Details:
braced for 6 months in a corset type brace after surgery not allowed to stand up without it on or sit up either.

Casting after Harrington rod surgery
Casting Details:
in plaster for 3 and a half months after harrington rod surgery.


Operated on in 1966 in Australia. T4 to L3 with Harrington rods, no problems until 10 years ago, and the pain has been on going since. Not complaining, life could be a lot worse.
One of my favourite sayings
Worrying is using your imagination to create something you don't want.
