Re: A new beginning

Re: new diagnosis, some success with diet

It definitely sounds as though your son has some form of food intolerance. It would be worth getting some tests done by his doctor if possible.

Re: Hope for adults with moderate scoliosis?

Some physiotherapy exercises can help with pain and sometimes some postural improvements can be made, but it can never change the structural aspect of your curve - only surgery can do that I'm afraid.

Re: new diagnosis, some success with diet

This is interesting stuff! So has your son been diagnosed as coeliac or lactose intolerant? It does look like you're onto something :)

Re: Knee and foot pain

Walking is the best thing you can do post-op as it stops you getting stiff and sore. It is almost certainly due to postural changes, different parts of your musculature are probably being used for...

Re: 3 Week count down!

The hospital will usually provide you with a 'sippy cup' for drinking tea or coffee so you don't spill a hot drink down yourself when you're laid on your back! It's a bit weird, going back to being...

Re: End of the road

Can the pain clinic not instigate confirming a diagnosis? This must be so incredibly frustrating for you and your family. I'm so sorry for what you are going through :(

Re: Hope for adults with moderate scoliosis?

How on earth could your doctor estimate your curve at 30 degrees without even sending you for an X-ray? The mind boggles :boggle:
