  • Scoliosis History
    A few fields to allow you to share some of your scoliosis history if you want to.
    What type of spinal curvature?
    Congenital Scoliosis
    Diagnosis Details
    "Congenital structural scoliosis and vertebral and rib anomalies" is the official explanation I tell everyone.
    Mom tried to miscarry at 8 weeks (when the vertebral column forms). Diagnosed a day or so after I was born.
    Fused ribs. Hemivertebrae, fused and partial vertebrae and a combo. Doctors didn't think I would walk. However, at 9 months I walked. =)
    What curve pattern?
    Single thoracolumbar
    Curve Pattern Details
    C on right side. Pre-op about 34 Post-op about 28, though that was about 18 years ago.
    Had surgery?
    Posterior surgery
    Surgery Details
    Spinal fusion/autograft (from my hip) at 16 months of age- basically to prevent kyphosis. Fun times.
    Worn a brace?
    TLSO brace (eg Boston brace)
    Bracing Details
    Wore braces until ~9 years old. Also fun times.
    Been cast?
    Casting for other reasons
