  • Scoliosis History

    Had surgery?

    Surgery Details
    I had a 2 stage operation when I was 11 to straighten my spine, my curve was a the top, I think thoracic.

    The first op they went in my right side and I think they prepared it for the rod to go in, if I remember rightly I think they loosened the vertabrates but I could be wrong lol I was bedbound for a week before my second op

    A week later I had my rod put in and I was in hospital for 3 and a half weeks.
