hi inca! 1st, happy belated everything! i hope you & your family had a wonderful Christmas/Channukah & WARM new years too!
i'm so sorry that you are now suffering with scoliosis. i honestly wish i knew how come no doctor every noticed it before. i was blessed that my mom's eyes were so 'attuned' to it since she wore a brace from the age of 2 to age 18. (yep, you DID read that correctly. 16 years she wore a brace. to quote her. "my spine was like a letter Z when i was 2!" she remebered it vividly in her senior years... she noticed it on ME when i was 7 MONTHS OLD! my teeny tiny right shoulder blade stuck out and i was unable to sit up properly at that young age. @ 7 months a baby CAN sit up good, but... 'cause of my scoliosis i wasn't... thank GOD she knew what to look for! sad to say now she has alzheimer's and is in a very wonderful nursing home in our neighborhood in brooklyn.)
my only suggestion for you is that you seek out the BEST DOC in the scoliosis field! they WILL know what to do better than just an orthopedist. i'm keeping you in my prayers kiddo!!!
