Hey! I"m new here and I thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Leelee and I'm 15 years old. I wore a boston brace for 4 years. I quit wearing it three months ago on june 8th because I stopped growing. Umm Lets see I have an upper curve of 38 and a lower of 41. Surgery may be a possibility in the future, it depends on how my curves do. I also post on another forum called spinekids, and it's really awesome! Ummm I think that's all I can think of about myself. Oh except for the fact that I love the band no doubt. I wouldn't want that to go unmentioned! anyways I hope everyone has a good day!

Leelee,

Calm down. I hope Pam didn't mean anything bad when she asked for your phone number. We are all here for support and none of us want anything bad to happen to our members. I know on Spinekids since it is mostly kids, they don't allow the exchange of e-mail addresses, phone numbers, addresses, etc. but since most of us are adults on this site, it is allowed and we have exchanged info. many times. I must congratulate you Leelee, for a young lady, you sure have your head on straight!!! Your response was exactly correct---say no and run the other way! You should NEVER give your personal info. to anyone on the internet.

Pam,

Please don't take offense to Leelee's response. We all know there are weird people out there just trying to do inappropriate things to our kids and the internet is an easy way for them to contact kids. Feel free to ask Leelee questions about her doctors, her numbers and things like that right here on the forum.

Summer,
You don't have to have surgery. Surgery isn't the only option. If you log onto www.scoliosisrehab.com and there is physical theripy that works! I was diagnosed with a 50 degree thorasic and 40 lumbar and in my new brace(I used to wear a Boston) my curves are 27 and 28. At first surgery was the only option but now with the therapy and brace, my doctor says that if I keep it up, I will never have to have surgery! The people at the site also can help adults with scoliosis. Hope this helps! :)

Summer,

My daughter didn't say that scoliosisrehab.com is a website created by her mom and her physical therapist to make people more aware of physical therapy for scoliosis. The method we utilize is the Schroth and it strengthens mucles which tend to be weaker due to both scoliosis and the brace wearing. Congratulations on being out of brace! It sounds like you were a faithful wearer even though it is difficult :)
