Hi Robin,
My daughter is 14 and she has Schuermans Kyphosis with a 90 degree curve with a slight Scoliosis to the right. She is due to have surgery in June, she suffers a lot with pain though. Like you in her kneck, shoulders and lower back, the docs have just put her on Tramadol which is really strong but it does help her, but its affecting school as its a sedative so it's not really ideal but she can't get through a school day without it.Do you take pain killers? It's great to chat to someone with Kyphosis as everyone seems to suffer with Scoliosis. Take care jo xx

Hi Jo! I am sorry to hear your daughter is also suffering a lot of pain, but I am glad she is due to have surgery and that she is still young enough to recover quickly. I am nervous about surgery, but I am pretty confident that it will greatly reduce my amount of pain. How long has she been taking painkillers? I do not usually take any, as I have almost "gotten used to" living in pain, I guess. But I do sometimes have to take sleeping pills to fall asleep because it is so hard to get comfortable at night. If you or your daughter ever want to talk, feel free to private message me! I am new to this forum, but I have found it is really helping me so far. You are right, it is nice to talk to people who understand and deal with the same things you are dealing with. Take care!
