Default Re: Meet and Greet

Hi there,
I'm Steph, I'm 28 and was diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis when I was 14. I went through brace treatment which prevented some curvature growth, enough for doctors to feel i could opt out of surgery if I wanted to. I did opt out, but as it's been 10 years since my last check up I am nervous about going back to see how my curve is faring as an adult!! My last scan at 18 showed an S curve with 43 thoracic and 49 lumbar degrees.

I didn't feel like I had a lot of understanding or support when I went through brace treatment (and I only had 2 years in it so was one of the lucky ones really!) so I'm in the process of creating a website aimed at children & adolescents to give them support & information. I'd love some help with it, so if you're interested, please PM me

Anyway thanks for having me here!!
