Default Scoliosis - 04-23-2009, 07:18 PM

I have been to the doctor's today, and then gave me X-Rays cuz I may or may not have Scoliosis. I'm kinda nervous.


Has anyone on here ever suffered from it? I just want to know, because they may give me surgery if I do have it. Just want to hear.

EDIT: I only have it a tad bit, tho. It's in my lower back. My spine doesn't curve too deep to the side.

you need

My mother has it. I will have to ask her about it though, as I don't know a whole lot about it. She has a really bad curvature of her spine, it's like an S in the lower part.

I have it. Mine isn't too bad, only a slight curve. I suffer from back pain from time to time, but its not that big of a deal.

I did have a friend though who had it so bad that she had to wear a back brace. She doesn't anymore, but at one point in time they were thinking about having her wear it during the daytime too instead of just as night.

Could it be hereditary? My mother was born with her hip out of the socket, so for a year they had to tie her up to move her hip into it's place. It worked, but it also resulted in Scoliosis. I suppose I couldn't have gotten it from her because it was partially the doctor's fault. I find out today... if it's over 20% I get surgery.

I don't think I have it. However, I know a girl who has it really bad but refused to do anything about it. :\ So if it is over a certain percentage, try to do something about it so you don't get hurt.



I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!

You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!

Dunno if I have it, but they had nurses testing fifth graders.

It's weird how you say that you hate the guy who broke your heart.. but when he runs back to you, your arms are wide open..

I know a really nice guy who works at this music shop I'm often in. He's got a pretty large S curve in his spine. And it's strange because he's really tall with it and he'd probably be about 7 foot without. I think he may be on painkillers most of the time... he's bizarrely happy for the condition. I don't know about braces and such on his back, nor do I know about surgeries. And he's an older guy, so it's likely that he's lived with it quite a while.

Unfortunately, I don't know enough about Scoliosis to be sure if what I'm saying makes any sense. XDD

I have it in my upper back, closer to my neck. It curves a little to the right. And it's extremely minor, not bad at all. If it gets any worse within a couple years there's a slight chance that I might have to get a brace =[
