    Wonder if we can change the title a bit and have it as a sticky so if any younger members want to read it has lots of info for the kids x

    Nice one Si

    Just to clarify, the hospital in Birmingham is the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital - it's not the same as the Royal National Orthopaedic Hospital, which is in Stanmore in Middlesex (though it's very easy to get the two confused!)
    [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]
