My brace came after the surgery not before and it wasn't like yours. It also was annoying to wear but I wore it any way. I considered that I was protecting my investment. When you get mad at it you can dump on me. I'll understand.

Hi Brian and Hadley:

Do you guys ever visit the forum at www.spinekids.com? Heaps of teenagers over there talking about their scoli (and everything else in their lives, too).

Cheers -
