Diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis on the 10th April 2007. Seen at the Child Development Centre at the Medway Maritime Hospital on 18th June – then referred to Mr Noordeen at the RNOH Stanmore. Seen by consultant on the 13th July – x-rays revealed 77o thoracolumbar curve and severe rotation. Surgery planned in 6 months – had surgery on 26th November 2007. Admitted for pre-op on 23rd – stayed in over the weekend. Curve then 90o, suffering from pain and reduced lung function. Moved from HDU to ward after 24hrs, then into isolation for suspected infection after 3 days. Symptoms turned out to be a bad reaction to antibiotics.
