Default Curve Estimate

Hi Dr Scoliosis,

I have booked in to see a specialist about my scoliosis however it is quite a lengthy wait. Are you able to estimate the degree of my curve? I dont know how to measure a cobb angle accurately and I am very interested as to the degree, so i can prepare myself for the specialist appointment.

My xray image is here, they didnt do a very good job of the xray i am afraid. please see here ---> http://tinypic.com/r/iojhu9/6

Also, how long post-surgery do office workers return to work on average? given that they are healthy, fit, non-smoker with decent muscle mass, age 24? Obviously everyone is different but is it likely to be a month or a year?

Thank you so much for you help. I am so nervous about the appointment.
