Re: Schuermanns kyphosis surgery help.

Save up some cash and go see a scoliosis specialist. 90 is too far to wait. 70 is almost shocking in the sense that a doctor said not to do something now. Good Luck and keep us posted.

Re: Great news...more questions for veterans ?!

The first guy - was he a spinal specialist or scoliosis specialist? Forget him! I think it sounds like you know what to do. Do not let it go too long. Lung capacity diminishes rapidly.

Re: Depression

Welcome to SSO. Your spine's curve doesn't warrant surgery right now. I think I would search out Yoga Classes, Physical Therapists, etc. and other alternative ideas before considering surgery. I...
