Re: Anyone have a child with scoliosis?

Oh boy.. I hope we don't have to do any kind of surgery!!! She said he'd likely need to be braced.. and he just turned 15 in May, and being male I'm thinking they continue growing until 18ish? Hopefully we can keep it from getting worse anyways.. his left rib pokes out there.. I thought possibly from the car wreck in 2003 maybe his rib was broken and no one noticed and it healed funky? Then with the old ped said it's just he way he's made (not to mention he laughed at me like I was looking for problems?!).. I just finally let it go and now look where we are.. GRR! I really need to learn to stand up for myself and if a dr doesn't listen and take me seriously, FIND ANOTHER ONE!
Thank you for sharing.. I have no idea what his percentage of curvature is, I will ask next week though..
