Scoliosis History

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:
S curve at 10. Progressed fast. Had Harrington rid put in at Scotish Rite in Dallas. My bone didn't fuse, so Dr. King in Ca. replaced it with a CD rod. All good now except my nerves are being squished and no surgery can get to them. After starting yoga, my back looked better than ever and feel better than ever. I also have major compression of heart and lungs.
What curve pattern?:
Single lumbar
Curve Pattern Details:
S curve with rib rotation and compression.
Had surgery?:
More than one surgery at different times(tell us more in the next field)
Surgery Details:
Harrington rod didn't work due to my bones not fusing so I had a CD rod put in and this time it worked.
Worn a brace?:
Post-op other
Bracing Details:
I had the body cast from under my arms to my hips after the first surgery. 6 months of that and then 6 months of a brace. The second surgery didn't need either but my Mom insisted on the brace.
Been cast?:
Casting after Harrington rod surgery
Casting Details:
Not fun.
