Hi,

I have congenital scoliosis but wasn't diagnosed until i was 14 1/2 yrs old the reason being i never had any pain and i also never had x-rays done before.

But sister actually picked it up when she was going down my spine and felt it wasn't straight also because in my thoracic- chest part is my worst curve which was around 50 degrees when i was 15 yrs old, i have some verterbras on top of each other if that makes sense. Also in my letter from him he said some verterbras were made up of multiple bits and pieces. You can't feel the spaces between the verterbras its like there's around 5 joint together has anyone heard of that before?

My specialist said that i was fully grown so my spine wouldn't progress anymore. I also have a second curve in the lumbar part which is 40 - 50 degrees. If they were gonig to operate he said they would only fuse my top curve some how does this sound normal?

Sorry for such a long post but i really want more info on people who know stuff on congenital or scoliosis it self.

Thanks
