Default Re: Surgery -- where to start?

Hi Coco,

Welcome to the forum.. I also have a lovely s curve and awaiting surgery. I had to join a private health fund, as the public health system in Sydney can be 2-3 year wait. My curves have increased by 6 degrees in 5months giving me 60 degree at lumbar and 48 at thoracic hence surgery. How long have you had scoliosis for? I'm not sure what Melbournes public health system is like but ensure you check out all aspects. From what I read a lot of people on the forum are in Melbourne and would be able to guide you. The support from people and their experiences here is wonderful. Just remember your not alone, so many of us have scoliosis and we too get to the point where surgery is our only option..

Wish you all the best
