Mandy is having trouble logging in and wanted me to post her photos as encouragement to anyone going through Scoliosis.
These photos are 6 weeks post surgery, fusion from T-5 - L-3 . Two 13 inch rods and about 12 hooks and screws.
She had a 51 degree T spine curve and 63 degree L- Spine curve. She was 12 on Feb 9 and had surgery on Jan 14th .
She asked me to post these in the kids forum in hopes that they will help someone who is facing this type of surgery to see how she looks and the hardware she has. You could not even see her incision from the audience!:D

Mandy you are absolutely stunning in your gown... I am very glad you are doing so well so quickly & that you are sharing this with us.
My 11 yr old son is set to have surgery this spring (Apr or May '10) - hope he does as well as you -- thank you, Nancy :)

Mandy, what a courageous girl you are! Your correction is so good and your recovery is simply amazing! I'm sure you are an inspiration to so many people - probably a lot of whom you are completely unaware of.

Thank you Mandy for sharing your experience and thank you Mandy's Mom for posting these photos!

All the best! :)
