Default Re: 12 year old having surgery in Jan

Hi Brett, wow - 9 hours each day! My daughter had T4 - T12 fusion on 28th June this year but only 5 hours of surgery - her curve was right thoracic too and also at 63 degrees. She had surgery in Mlebourne even though we are from WA and the surgeon, hospital and nurses were remarkable. She is now back in the pool doing tumble turns, running 1.5 km and riding her bike on a spin trainer (she will aim for a triathlon in April as that and swimming are her passion). My daughter's bravery and the sheer gutsiness of the other children you read about on this forum are truly inspirational. I will be thinking of you on the days of the surgery and hoping your experience is a positive as ours.
Take care
