Default Re: Surgery booked January

My daughter is 12 and had her surgery in March this year. Her curve was over 80* and her fusion was from T4to L4. She wore a brace for 18 months but unfortunately it didn't help. The surgery is major but well worth the couple of weeks of worry and stress after the surgery. I can not believe how quickly my daughter has recovered but the best thing is how straight she is. She is now able to wear clothes that sit nicely on her, before she was wearing big baggy tops to cover her brace and then her rib hump. We did have some complications after the surgery but they seem like a distant dream now. The hardest part was the wait before the surgery. I wish you and your daughter the best of luck and I suggest that you get your daughter to build up her leg because she will be using them a lot after the surgery.
