Default Re: Very worried mum. Non surgical treatment?

Hi, I went through the same worrying process as you and researched long and hard before opting for surgery for my fifteen year old daughter. I faced the dilemma that my daughter had no pain prior to the surgery and knew of course that she would have it after for a while. However, when you know about the progression rate it is obvious that you need to do something as soon as you humanly can. My daughter had a right thoracic curve of 63 degrees at 15 and it was already impacting on her breathing. She had surgery 6 days ago with the most wonderful surgeon who achieved a fantastic correction. She is doing well. Please know that whatever you decide to do there are wonderful people on this forum who will support you. I am happy for you to email me or private message. Talking to other Mums will get you through.
