How large was your curve? Do you have pre-surgery x-rays?

Congratulations! :)

Hi, I'm fairly new too. You look great! How much mobility do you have? My daughter has two curves, thoracic 55 and lumbar 53. We're still in the limbo stage, watching and waiting. Just wondering what we can expect after surgery -- if she has to have surgery. Cheryl

Hi guys: my curves were 44 and 37 degrees, which is mild compared to some, but the pain was enough for me to want to kill whoever was responsible for this ridiculous spine of mine, which in the end is no one, but my anger at the pain would nonetheless cease until a surgical miracle interceded to make me well again. So there you have it! Peace...Kat
