Re: New to forum,daughter getting surgery
My daughter had her magnetic rods done in July 2013 at the age of 6. She was initially diagnosed in December 2010 and we were told that she would require surgery ASAP! As her curve was about 65 degrees. Anyway we waited and waited and two and a half years later did she have her operation! Her curve was now 105 degrees, anyway the point I am trying to make is that we had to wait that long for a date, only got one after I complained to the hospital management about the delay!! If you are given a date for the op then go ahead! Mummy2lucy, there are risks with any type of operation, it's the duty of doctors to tell you beforehand, we can't go on thinking what if? I am saying this from past experience, my daughter has also had 2 liver transplants and can't begin to tell you what she's been through!(and me!) the spinal operation itself outweighs the risks of any unforeseeable problems and you have to think positively! I am sure everything will be ok!
