scoliosis. . scared :/

So I am 22. I was just officially diagnosed. My primary care doctor was pretty vague but I am seeing an orthopedic soon. I have been told by a chiropractor who I only saw once that I have a 35* curve with rotation. This was almost 4 years ago.. 2 children later I feel like I am 50. I constantly ache and its hard for me to lift much weight. I do not see surgery being a good option and am terrified of the thought! Do you think they will brace me? Pain management? I am very uncomfortable on a daily basis and feel completely defeated at the end of each day!! Just wanted some thoughts to ease my mind! Thank you!
