Hi Everyone!

So nice to see you pipe up Rodverta! xxx! And extra nice to hear you are well.

I had fusion T4 to L1 in 2011 and then thoracoplasty (5 ribs) in 2012. Now aged 55 (how did that happen!?) and flying to see my specialist in Melbourne for a follow up in a few weeks.

Feeling ok most of the time but still struggle with energy and muscle weakness. Mostly due to middle agedness and me juggling too many things

hi All,
as I have read elsewhere it seems a whirlwind introduction to the twisted journey of scoliosis is not that uncommon.
as it was when I found out my child was a curvy girl.
We have just recently had my daughter confirmed with scoliosis, thoracic curve at 48 degrees.
firstly it was guilt as to how I could have missed this ?
we have learnt to supress the guilt,
now it is research and how we can help.
we are in perth W.A if anyone has some info on centres that offer non surgical treatment, like Schroth etc?
or if anyone knows of any groups where the kids get together to talk and support each other.
