    Hi

    just to mention i had mine surgery at the royal orthopaedic, and have read most of the stories before hand, very helpful and interesting

    the Birmingham royal orthopaedic is great and the staff on ward 11 are great! this story is a must read for any prospective surgery goers! x

    Hi Megan, welcome to SSO!

    Thanks for that, I hope you're recovering well from your surgery

    Toni xx
    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.

    I don't even know if I'm having surgery, but I simply enjoyed reading all of the scoliosis and other conditional stories - great insight to what happens. Although two punctured lungs in about seven stories was a bit alarming

    I'm Tiff, I'm 17, my consultant's Mr Gibson at RNOH Stanmore and I was diagnosed in November 2011 and I had my spinal fusion October 3rd 2012 and am now fused T2-T11 with amazing correction (60T/40L to 30T/40L).
