Default Re: Amelia's surgery

Update. 12 months later, I remember the fear of Miss 12's scoliosis diagnosis and the likelihood of surgery as the triple curves were progressing rapidly and unpredictab. A year after surgery, we are done and dusted.

The only thing that reminds us of her scoliosis is a faint scar on her back (she refuses to let me rub VitE into it because she wants people to know she went through it). She is back riding her horse, in a new school (we moved to the country to support a healthy lifestyle and riding) has fabulous friends, a new boyfriend and life is generally working out beautifully for her.

I'm so glad we decided to take the surgical route when she was young. Like she said, 'get it over with so I can get on with life.'

So glad we did it early.

12 month review. Main curve 18 degrees. Other two are compensatory and very minor. Minimal scarring, no hump and zero pain. Surgeon said she is "cured".
