Hi all, My 15 year old son, Ryan and have been diagnosed with a curve of 56 degrees. Been to see Mr Gibson today, and decided to go ahead with fusion surgery for the thoracic part of the spine. It will be at Stanmore in July sometime. We have been trying theraflex treatment which seems to have helped but not enough. Has anyone else here been to Mr Gibson? He seems very good and a very nice man. Feeling scared!
