Default Re: 39 degree scoliosis

It has been six months or so since I visited the forum and now after a lot of mucking around I am waiting to see a specialist. Such a long wait though, prob not before the end of February. (I live in Tasmania) Arthritis in my s-bends is becoming quite problematic and my GP has prompted me to follow it up after my last x-rays done in September, which clearly shows the mangled mess. It was a bit of a shock to see and it at least explains the burning nagging pain. I just thought it was because of the curve, as I have had pain since 12. I am now 48 and feel reassured after reading that mature women can have successful surgery. Kind of terrified of having surgery, and terrified at the thought of not having it...
