View Full Version : first time surgery

I am a 28 year old female. I have a double curve with a rotation. My upper measures 59 degrees and I'm not sure what my lower measures. I am scheduled to have surgery in November. I would like to know about your experiences with surgery. What is the worst part of surgery? Also, is the back brace plastic?

if you spend a few minutes browsing the forum, this has been covered many times. I've answered this question maybe 3-4 times in the last week or so.

Hi there,

I'm a 28 year old female and am also recommended surgery for a 47 degree thoracic curve (30 lumbar). This site is great for learning about other people's experiences with surgery. I would also be happy to communicate privately if you would like to email me at lrmb24@hotmail.com. It might be useful to compare what our respective surgeons have explained to us.

Good luck. I'm sure you will find lots of support from the people on this website.
Take care, Laura
