  • 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
    i was diagnosed with scoliosis just before my 9th birthday, complaining with back pain after my mam and i were in a road traffic accident, i was eventually seen by an orthopaedic surgeon who X-rayed and diagnosed Scoliosis i've recently just had my 3rd surgery and am expecting more
    What curve pattern?
    Double major
    Curve Pattern Details
    When Karen was first diagnosed in 2006 she had a single thorasic curve of approx 26', since then in June 2008 the X-ray show a double Major curve. Her most recent X-ray Mar 2009 showed curve of between 45-50'. Karen has been wearing a body brace since August 2008, 23 hrs a day 7 days a week. It is very difficult, she gets very upset about wearing it, she wants to wear all the fashionable clothes like her friends, but instead has to wear more bulky clothes to cover brace. Its also very difficult because the sugeon expresses how he IS and IS NOT in view of the brace, he can not say if it will help Karen at all apart from giving her alot of discomfort which it does. But I was so anxious about how disfigured Karens rib-cage was getting, that he sent us to the Orthopaedic Hospital to see the Brace specialist there for his opinion, whcih was that he felt Karen could only benefit by wearing the brace even if it was to stop the rib cage a bit from getting more disfigured, but the surgeon could be right, because th
    Had surgery?
    No surgery
    Surgery Details
    Surgery could possibly be scheduled for 2010
    Worn a brace?
    TLSO brace (eg Boston brace)
    Bracing Details
    Karen has been wearing her first brace since Aug 2008, but because Karen has taken such a stretch over the last year which is obviously why curve has increased she has outgrown her body brace. We are currently waiting for funding to be aproved by HSE for Karens second Body Brace
