I'm probobly going to get my brace off in about two years, and by then I'm going to be 15, and learning how to drive. So what I'm going to do is run over my brace with my dad's bentley. :D What are you going to do?

I'm going to do lots of backbends summersalts because I can't do that right now! I think I might save my brace as a keepsake. I draw pictures on mine to make it more personal!LOL!!! :D :D :D

i always vowed to burn mine and send the charred lump to my surgeon but i never did. i still have it and two and a half years after being released from it i wish it still fit me - i've grown outwards a lot :D

The orthotist at my hospital told me that you could throw their braces off the C.N. tower or run over it with a car and it'll still be intact !!! That's how durable their braces are :eek: I guess you would need some kind of explosive to destroy it. :D As far as I know, you shouldn't burn it because the plastic could be toxic.

In my experience in dealing with anxiety and when I use to post to a support group on MSN. I use to post and look at it everyday when I was feeling my worst and I thought that my medication wasn't working....But after switching medication and feeling fine for many years I haven't posted to that board since i'm feeling fine. So I believe that the people whom bracing helped and did wonders, they would not be searching or posting for a board such as this, they would be out getting on with there life without the worry of Scoliosis.
My 8 year old daughter has recently been diagnosed and has been told to wear the brace 23/7 and we're going to work our way up to that and pray it keeps her curve which the doctor said was 21 degrees and 16 degrees.
