Hey everybody! I am new here and am 12 and almost 1/2 (June 30th). I was Diagnosed in January with a 10 T and a 20 L. But after a few months, I had a 15T and 25 L (the time when they start bracing! :mad: ). I was given a boston brace last friday and can already say POOP. I am still getting into it but I'm doing keyboarding during summer school and my back gets so sore by thaat 4 hr period!!! I Hate it, any advise??? :confused:

I know, right now it sucks. it really does. but once you get used to it, it really improves. nothing can compare to being w/o a brace, but you just have to keep wearing it. my parents set up a system that while I was weaning into the brace, if I was wearing it, I could do whatever I wanted, watch TV play on the computer, etc. good luck!!
