Hiya everyone - I'm Lyssie,

I'm new here and I wanted to say hello...

I'm 23 years old, was diagnosed with scoliosis at 10 and to cut a very long story short, I've been through 2 spinal fusions and I am in chronic pain :( I am on some rather strong painkillers which just about help. I am going to be fitted for a sacral belt to help with my Sacro-Iliac joint problems which are in association with the inbalance of my scoliosis. Soooo I am hoping the belt will help lots :D I have physiotherapy at 11am today!

I'm a musc freak haha, we have lots of cats (even the hairless kind :P) I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters. I am glad to be here and look forward to chatting with you all!

Lots of love from Lyssie xx


  • HI Lyssie,

    First let me say welcome to spine-health. Have a look around and you will find others with the same condition as yourself. Sounds as though you have been through a lot for such a young age. But being so young sounds as though you have a great attitude. That will go along way dealing with chronic pain. Hopefully the new brace will help tons. Have fun at physical therapy today.

    Just thought I would stop by and welcome you to spine-health, if there is anything I can do, just pm me. Take care and once again welcome.
