Re: Nicol's latest problem

Obviously I am not diagnosing his problem- but this sounds like 'arrhythmia' . This is the generic name. I had something very similar- it started in my early teens. I had it all the way...

Re: Not had surgery

Hi

I chose not to have surgery in my 30s also.

I don't regret the decision but I am now in quite a lot of pain and may now still have to have surgery.

Re: Seeking hope

Am I reading this incorrectly- I think Bokwagter has an 86 degree Kyphosis and not Scoliosis?.

If it is an 86 scoliosis curve then indeed I think that surgery would be recommended . I am not...

I have developed a cervical curve over the last 7 years or so that seems to be progressing rapidly despite my other two structural curves progressing at a much slower rate.
