Your Scoliosis Stories...

Well, today is the last day of June (can you believe it?) which means the last day of Scoliosis Awareness Month.

To finish off the month, I thought I’d post a couple more of your scoliosis stories that I have received. Please keep them coming and I’ll be sure to feature them on my blog. 🙂

Today’s scoliosis story comes from Sadie, you can read her experiences with scoliosis below…


Your Scoliosis Stories: Sadie’s Story

I just wanted to say thank you.

When was first diagnosed with scoliosis I had no idea what it was, and I found myself searching for answers, until I stumbled across your blog. I found your blog so useful and even now 1 year on I still read your blog.

I was diagnosed with scoliosis when I was 12 years old, I didn’t know what it was and I was afraid.

I spent a year going back and forth to appointments trying to figure out what the best course of action would be.

I had an S shaped curve, 70 degrees thoracic and 57 degrees lumbar.

I was told that my scoliosis was too severe for bracing, and that the only correction I could have was surgery.

The whole thought of surgery terrified me, I had no idea what to expect. However, I knew I needed the surgery, and so my parents and I signed the agreement papers, and that was that !

The surgery and recovery was hard, but I am so glad that I did it. I couldn’t be happier with the results, and I can safely say 1 year later that it was all worth it in the end !

Thank you for taking the time to read my story.
