Hi Janene,

How is your daughter (and son) doing? Feeling any more reassured a year on?

As someone who was diagnosed at 11 with a 38deg curve, wore a brace til I was 16 & surgery at 18 (at 78deg) - I can reassure you life at 29 is great.

I never felt any different to everyone else growing up & thought of it just like being the kid with a broken arm. I would absolutely not change anything or wish I had grown up any different. It was my mum who was freaked out. We tried every alternative therapy on this planet.

The surgery went fine & I now never really have to think about it again! You'd be surprised how resilient kids are.
