    hi, connie!

    that is good news about your daughter. i took my son (age 9) for an evaluation a couple of weeks ago; he has an 11-degree curve that is mostly in the lower part of his back, so we're going to check up on his progress (or lack of it) every six months. how many of us out there who have scoliosis ourselves have children with the same problem? just curious....

    sue,
    my daughters curve is in the lumbar section also...your dr. should watch him very closely. I'm sure many scoli patients have kids with it...it runs in the family....I have my eldest daughter with a 26 curve my son with 14 and now my younger daughter so thats 3 so far out of 5 the others are still little......

    The drop in curve is a mini miricle! I pray that this will continue too!

    My dad and I had identical problems too. Both had kyphosis (hunchback) and both had scoliosis! We made into a medical book!
