Re: I am concerned. Do I have kyphosis?
Hi Tom, welcome to SSO
I don't really know too much about kyphosis, but it looks like if you do have it, it's relatively minor. Normal kyphosis is classed as being between 20 and 40 degrees, so it might be worth seeing a specialist who can measure your curve properly (I'm not sure you've done it right there, as you may have chosen the wrong points to measure from - it's difficult without an x-ray!).
What are your concerns - are you getting pain, or are you worried that it will progress as you get older? Cosmetically I think you look great, so please don't stress about that
[SIZE="1"]37 years old, diagnosed with infantile idiopathic scoliosis at 6 months old with curves of 62(T) and 40(L) degrees. 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]
