Hi Linda, Thank you for your response. Yes this is the second opinion. I got this doctor off the list from the Scoliosis Foundation. I am 58 almost 59 and afraid if I get much older it will be harder but I feel like I am being forced into this action with no alternative. I do have to push myself up with my arms on the walker. I get around fine without it but bent over and a bit off balance. Due to previous surgery a Chiropractor will not touch me.
