Hi
Welcome to the forum. I know it has been so good for Lauren and I to be able to talk to other mums/girls who are experiencing the same feelings.
Lauren is going in on Friday for her op on Saturday. It is about a year since we found out how bad her scoliosis was. It is all very scary, but we know it needs to be done.
It is hard to believe Lauren will soon be where young Gabby is now. These last few weeks have been hard....the countdown.
Bye for now,
Judy

Hi Irene,
Welcome to the forum. What are the cobb angles of the curve/s?
If you have any questions, fire away. I'm from Adelaide (will be in Melbourne on the 12th) for a xmas dinner.
