My granddaughter was diagnosed with scoliosis around 9 months old. At that time, her curve measured 30% and the doctor wanted to watch her every six months. Well, she is now two years old and went from 30% to 70%. A MRI was performed and during the test it was discovered her spine is pressing on other organs; lungs, heart, etc.. The MRI was discontinued 4 minutes early because her oxygen level dropped to 40.
Within the last year she had pneumonia, bronchitis and several colds.
I would like to know the seriousness of my granddaughter’s scoliosis. What are the options? I'm really worried. Because I am the grandmother, I do not want to interfere, but I'm really concerned.
