I have two curves in my spine in the shape of an S. Top top curve is 35 degrees and the lower is 34 degrees. My pcp says that surgery is an option but he doesn't recommend it and referred me to a specialist. I have yet to hear from the specialist but I'm aiming towards surgery as an option. What are your opinions? I'm in severe pain everyday and can't even work out so now i'm gaining all this weight and everything just sucks. Btw I'm 24, and have been diagnosed since 17. When I was 17, they recommended surgery but my mother said no. Now that i'm old enough, i believe i want to have the surgery.
