    Diagnosis Details
    Congenital scoliosis, treated at the A.I. Dupont Clinic from 18 months till I was 14. Leg lenghtening surgeries to correct at 2.5" difference. Lived a pretty much normal life. About 5 years ago experienced a herniated disc. Becasue of pain and severe neurological issues, had a microdiscectomy which helped for about a month. Then had a foraminoplasy 8 months later, which again helped for about 6 weeks. My pain became worse then before. Spinal Cord Stimulator implant, which I don't use anymore because the lead has moved and I had to have it up so high to cover any pain.
    Now 34 y/o with severe pain, numbness in lower back and extending down both legs. The right leg pain/symptoms just began about 2 months ago. New increased pain in my mid-thoracic area as well. My legs also will just give out on me and have a week feeling. Neurosurgeon reccomended I see a scoliosis specific surgeon. Now I am hunting for a doc.
