  • 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
    My curve is S - shaped. I was advised to have the surgery when I was in my early 20's ...they said my curve was getting worse and that I wouldn't live past 40.
    What curve pattern?
    Double major
    Curve Pattern Details
    I cannot remember the exact degree..I believe it was 57? Again my spine is S shaped.
    Had surgery?
    More than one surgery at different times(tell us more in the next field)
    Surgery Details
    I had my first surgery when I was 23. I had harrington rods implanted and my spine was fused. Bone was taken from my hip to aid in the fusion. My rod broke approx a year later. They re-implanted another one which is thicker.
    Been cast?
    Casting after Harrington rod surgery
    Casting Details
    I wore a body cast for approx 5 months ( I think) after my first surgery. It was definately different!!
