Hi, all! My son has had 2 surgeries, been thru several rounds of chemo, and has worn a milwaukee brace for 14 months now. He was just fitted for a new brace, and the "brace guy" ( affiliated with a Shriner's hosp) was unable to get the correction he wanted for the kyphosis and said they suspected his curve has become "rigid"...what exactly does this mean?
I haven't posted for some time because the scoliosis end of his care has been on the back burner, but now it's time for me to start researching again, given this latest potential development.....Anyone? Carmell? We still have to see the orthopedist again to confirm/deny the rigid diagnoses....but thought I'd do a little investigating in the meantime.
