Hello everyone, I am very new to all of this, so any input would be greatly appreciated. I am a 35 year old mother of 4 wonderful children, and today I had my two oldest to the doctor's, my daughter who is 10 was getting checked for scoliosis and my son who is 14 being checked for dislocated shoulders. But also found out that he has minor scoliosis. Anyway.... my daughter had two x-rays done on her back (side view and back view) Oh my gosh did my mouth drop to the floor when I saw the results . They looked horriable. Come to find out she not only has scoliosis but she also has Lordosis (severe bowing of the back inward) and the doctor told me that so far he does not want her to wear a brace, or even to consider surgery. All he wants her to do is exersizes twice a day for 20 minutes at a time to see if it helps her any. And not to lift any thing heavy. But the problem is that my daughter is having a lot of pain with her back. It burns all the time around her waist line and aches all of the time. I am very concerned about that and told the doctor about my concerns. He said to give her Tylenol and see if that helps. I am very concerned about all of this. The doctor wants to see them both back in a year to see how much it has progressed and I don't think that is the right thing to do. I think that something should be done about it now. My daughter is very small for her age and she only weighs 56 pounds. She get's very clumsy while she is walking and often trips over her feet. She tells me it is because it's because her back is bothering her that it happens so often. I like I said am very concerned about her and my son. Should I be having all of these feelings (worried, upset, fearful ect. ) I am planning on getting a second opinion a.s.a.p I think there should be more done than just excerises. The doctor also told me that with the comination of the Lordosis and the Scoliosis is bad and could also be very rapid in changes. Is this true and if so where do I go from here? ANY INPUT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED !!! I am very sorry if this was very confusing to read, but hope you all understand where I am coming from and my concern's.
