    6-8 months

    I went to my back doctors recently, and i've to wear my brace for 6-8 more months my curve was abiut 47 degrees. He said if it goes over 60 or my pa'in levels get too high i will have the opp. But i've just chosen my GCSE options and i wasnt sure if i could take PE, he said i could but wouldnt advise having a job involving it in the future! I know my back aches when i have no BOB so im worried about that but not for now hey its a bit off yet!
    Bored of BOB!

    You should consider surgery. For most doctors, mid to upper 40 degrees is the curve range for surgery. And if you are having back pain as well, surgery is your best option.

    Good Luck.
