  • Scoliosis History
    A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.
    What type of spinal curvature?
    Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis
    Diagnosis Details
    Diagnosed with a single C-shaped thoracolumbar curve at around age 14.
    Told it wouldn't get any worse when in my late teens as I had finished growing.
    However, it continued to progress causing many health problems along the way until I finally had surgery on an 80 degree curve at 49 years old.
    What curve pattern?
    Single thoracolumbar
    Curve Pattern Details
    Left thoracolumbar, single (C-shaped) curve with a loss of lordosis and resulting mild kyphosis.
    Had surgery?
    Posterior surgery
    Surgery Details
    Instrumented posterior scoliosis correction on August 17th 2006.
    Now the proud owner of 2 titanium rods, 17 screws, 2 hooks and 2 crossbars!
    Surgery performed by Mr Ashley Cole at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield.
    Worn a brace?
    No brace
