Re: Pictures of my back, the psychological and physical pain of living with kyphosis
Alex, You certainly have courage. I definitely am more twisted and have a larger hump, but to this day I could not post photos. I admire your courage because it is important for others to know what we are talking about. Your photos and Mark's should give some of the people pause. This scoliosis thing is serious business and if there is no treatment the disease can ruin our preset and future. Thanks Alex!
I am 61 years old and the resident SSO fossil. I live in Oklahoma,USA with my husband Allen. We have one daughter Jae and she has three kids.Our grandkids are: Aidan is8. He's the one pictured in my current avatar. Jenna Jean is 7 and Ryan Allen is just 4 It's full time chaos here! I was diagnosed in 1965 at 14 years with Kyphoscoliosis and 2 curves measuring 68 and 63 degrees. My last measurements were in 2004 at 155, 88 and 55+ degrees. I have never had surgery or bracing so I now am on full time oxygen and use a Non Invasive Ventilator at night. at night.
