:confused: what is good about wearing a brace

I know that wearing the brace can suck big time. But if you DON'T wear it, your back could get worse and then you'd need the surgery, which sucks even more than wearing the brace. I had my brace for seven years.. and I hated it too. I didn't wear it as much as I was supposed to, and my back DID get worse and I DID end up having the surgery.

Now that I'm older and "wiser" haha... I look back and think about how silly I was for not wearing my brace like I should have. So learn from my mistake and wear your brace.. learn to LOVE your brace, not hate it. ;)

I hope you feel better about it...

lisanicole is totally right. I wore a brace for four years before I needed surgery (six weeks ago). A lot of the time I would wear my brace for only eight hours when they told me 12-14 hours, and that was when my curve got a lot worse. If you don't listen to the doctors your curve WILL get worse and you will probably end up in the hospital, and its not fun...believe me. GOOD LUCK!

wearing a brace sucks. no doubt about it, there is nothing fun or cool about it. but to be blunt, if you dont wear it, you will end up in the hospital. the surgery is NOT fun, you dont want to have to learn how to walk again and miss a month of school/summer fun.

for me about 50% is good

*I get new clothes if they fit right (even if they r 50$)

*I also have a 504 plan at school and can go to the
Bathroom/nurse as many times I want!!!

*also I get the excuse of not being able to fit in the back of our car!!!

Ok the GOOD thing about a brace is... U can say hey! punch me in the stomach! and enjoy the look on the person's face after!! Just kidding! Its hard wearing a brace... but wearing it gives u that much more to look forward to... knwo what i mean? Like before u had the brace everyday was just so-so... but now with the brace u can say next year at this time i'll be my sexy self! and u'll feel so confident and just feel like smiling all the time. Sometimes... the doc will tell u that u only have to wear it 16 hours a day... so u can have it off for whatever u want to do that is special! So just keep goin with the brace. Happy days are on their way... and everyday u are one step closer!
