Re: Your First Experience of Hospital
Welcome Koda! I'm sorry to hear about your daughter needing surgery. What type of scoliosis does she have? I had AOS (Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis). Surgery is very very scary but it definitely is worth it to have a better future. I don't regret it. My curve was 64 degrees when I had my surgery done last year. They say, the younger you are when you have it done, the sooner you recover. Lastly, not sure about putting parents to sleep, as mine weren't allowed to stay over due to me being over 18. Good luck and best wishes for whatever decision she takes! xxx
