My daughter has been diagnosed with and S shaped scholiosis the top curve 59% and lower 48%. She is 14 and is still growing. The consultant has recommended surgery but she does not want it and as parents we are worried about what will happen to her if she does not have the surgery.
We have read articles and forum feedback and it appears that for some they can have increased back problems following surgery later in life.
She is otherwise a very fit, athletic young lady and we are terrified that with surgery her life could drastically change giving her pain that she currently does not have. On the other hand, if she leaves surgery, will she have more problems later in life and what could they be.
Any feedback would be welcome at this early stage.
