Default Re: 39 degree scoliosis

I too, was diagnosed at age 13 and didn't have surgery (it was a horror back then in the 60s.) No back pain, no problems until about 48-49 when I started to have pain. Curve increased and pain increased through my 50s. The surgery now is amazing, so I was lucky I waited, but on the other hand, I would probably have got a better correction and saved myself years of pain if I'd had it in my 40s when the pain started!

Teens seem to do extremely well with the surgery. What does your surgeon recommend?
