Dear Samantha, we were told we could be waiting for a very long time at the public, so we went private...i am sorry if that is not an option for you, maybe if you start phoning constantly, you might get moved along a bit. I am not sure what category 2 is? do you know the curvature angle/s? Are you being monitored for changes to the curve while you are waiting ? Sorry not be helpful, I can imagine how difficult is is for your daughter to be waiting with no certainty.

Hello,
I got put on waiting list in August 2012, was category 2 and got my surgery in April this year. I am 33 and a public patient but am also annoying lol so called after 4 months, 6 months and 7 months to see where I was on the list. I think it helps sometimes to put a face/voice behind the name on the list. I hope your daughter doesn't have to wait too much longer and good luck to you both.
Xx renee
