I found out two weeks ago that I need surgery. I am however, not scared. Since my curve is in the higher part of my back they do not have to take out ribs to correct it, nor do I need a bone graph. My degree is about 47-50 in the upper-right part of my back. I am getting surgery in June, and I personally cant wait. What are some of your surgery experiences and if you have any back brace problems or questions just ask me!

I am not sure about my back degrees but its around 50. I have not yet had surgery but I think it is the best route. I heard each year after you stop growing your back can worsen by 1 degree each year. I found out about my scoliosis 2 years ago, and found out about me getting surgery 2 weeks ago. I personally I think that if surgery is an option that is what should be done, but thats just me. My organs are being squished and one side of my ribs are sticking through my back, hopefully that is not happening to you but I would love to get it fixed; no matter the cause.
