Default Re: breathing difficulties and scoliosis

Hi Chantelle. My daughter recently had surgery for a 65 degree thoracic curve. The surgeon told us that breathing difficulties can occur if the curve worsens. Do you know if your main curve is in the thoracic region? Your GP should be able to refer you to an orthopaedic surgeon or scoliosis specialist. If they haven't suggested it - tell them that you would like a referral to one. Hopefully they can check your spine and let you know if that is the cause - or even a part of. If your current GP won't help - see another one. Good luck with it
