Question Contemplating surgery after having 2 children but want a third...

Hello
I am new to the forum. I have a 3 year old son and a 6 month old Daughter. I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 13. I have found such an increase in pain and rib hump since the birth of my second child. Both children were born at full term and natural birth no drugs. I have just received an appointment with a specialist in Melbourne but it isn't until may. I am so over having an abnormal back and am now quite excited at the possibility of having a normal back in the near future....
My problem is that my curve was at 53 degrees in 2009 so must be worse now but has anyone had a baby before AND after surgery? Should I wait because we want a 3rd? but I want the op ASAP?
Any feedback would be so appreciated and if you have had surgery in melb can you pm the specialist you saw?
