    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!)
    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.
