Hi everyone! I am new here but hope I can help kids and teens going through the process of surgery with my experience. I am 24 now and had surgery 4 days before my 12th birthday. I am sad to say I really don't know much about my surgery and scoliosis other than I had a 70+ degree curve and am missing a rib and part of my pelvis from surgery. I am in the process of getting my medical records so hopefully I will soon know more about my scoliosis. I have 3 main scars from surgery and recently decided to get a tattoo incorporating the scar where he removed part of my pelvis. Hope this link works. I look forward to getting to know all of you!
