Hey, all! I'm Sally.
I guess I just kind of wanted to introduce myself. I was diagnosed with AIS at 13, but sadly was passed around doctor to doctor in my small hometown so I was never helped for the curvature, nor pain. I'm now 19 and married, which led to me moving to Colorado and to a much bigger city. I've had really extreme pain lately, so I decided to give a doctor visit one last try. I'm thankful I did, since I now have a surgery date coming up in October! My curvature is now 60 degrees (T) and 57 degrees (L) and I'm going to be fused from T4 - L4. I'm so nervous it's awful, but I'm really, really excited to finally get this taken care of. It's all I can see when I look in the mirror anymore.
I've never had much of an opportunity to talk with others who also have scoliosis, so I'm glad to have found this group!
