Hi, My name is Leyda . I live in Miami, FL . I've had scoliosi since I was a child but for financial reasons my mother wasn't able to do anything. I am now 26 with a 15 month old son and will be having surgery. My curverture is 89% which is really bad, I'm always in pain but more so since I had the baby(running around and picking him up).I can't do most any normal activity without pain such as walking or sitting for a long time, cleaning my house or carry my son which is the most upsetting, I wear baggy clothes and don't even own a bathing suit. Can you imagine living near the beach and never going for fear of people looking at me like i'm some freak? I am terrified, I never needed surgery for anything in my life. My second appointment is Oct. 15 and I would like to know what kind of questions I should ask? I'm am so glad I'm not alone.
