My son just had surgery for congenital scoliosis. I'm so glad to hear that you are well & have had no problems since the surgery. We also knew about the potential for scoliosis @ birth but didn't receive/need (?) medical attention for scoliosis until he was 5. It's been ongoing since then so we are hoping this will be the end of scoliosis treatment for Alexander. I know he will still need to be monitored because he is still actively growing but I hope no more surgery.
I just wanted to say thanks for writing because it is always reassuring for me to read about successful recoveries with no additional problems so many years after surgery. Esp. because your situation sounds similar to my son's.
Mother of Alexander & Zachary:
Alex is 16 years old and in the 11th grade. He has congenital scoliosis due to a hemivertebrae at T10. Wore a TLSO brace for 3 1/2 years. Pre-op curves were T45 & L65; curves post-op are approx. T31 & L34. Had a posterior spinal fusion from T8 to L3 on 7/12/07 at age 12. Doing great now in so many ways, but still working on improving posture.
Zach is 13 years old and very energetic.
