Casting and Milwaukee braces until surgery at 10 - ant release/pos fusion T1-T12, halo traction. Post op cast and then TLSO. Further surgery at 18 (ant release/pos fusion extended to L3 to include lumbar curve, costoplasty) and 25 (another costoplasty). Fusion extended to L4 at 33 (XLIF with 4 pedicle screws and two short rods). Pre-op curves: 76(T) and 70(L). Post-op curves: 45(T) and 35(L). Diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome aged 34; scoliosis almost certainly due to this rather than being idiopathic.[/SIZE]

    Hey Mark, I'm sorry to hear you have to undergo further surgery but on a more positive note if it helps your daily pain and gives you a fuller and happier life it'll be more than worth it!
    You're an awesome and brave man, you'll blitz it!

    Hugs,
    Sam xx
