Hi Janene,
Know exactly how you feel. My daughter was 9 when first put into her brace. A very daunting experience to see your child in a hard shell. Unfortunately our outcome was not good as we were told that the brace was not tight enough, after she was wearing it for 18 months, to this day I can not understand why this was not pointed out earlier, now she is 12 with a curve of 63 degrees, her op is booked for Jan in Melbourne 2013.

All I can say is make sure it is worn firmly, otherwise it is a waste of time.
Had my Daughter worn it tighter we may have had a better outcome. I hope your child has success with the brace, best of luck. Brett
