Default Surgery - long term impact?

Hi we are new to this forum. We have a 15 year old daughter who has a thoracic curve of 55 and a compensatory lumbar curve. Our surgeon has said that surgery is required but like everyone else we are worried about such a big operation. We have been reading lots of the comments which we have found to be very helpful. However we are wondering if there is anyone who has had the surgery a few years ago (or more) and how they are coping now. We have read so much about how surgery has improved over the years which is reassuring, however would still be interested in hearing from someone who had the surgery more than 2 years ago. Thanks
