Hi everyone i am a 24 year old female. I was diagnosed with scoliosis at age 12. My mother seemed to think that my spine would straigthen on its own and refused any of the medical procedures offered. I am now starting to have back pain and recently went to see my doctor. I had xrays done i have a S shaped curve the top measures at 45 degrees and the bottom is at 43. Also i have a very prominent rib hump on my back right side, this has been an issue and struggle for years it just makes me feel bad about myself. I havent been able to go to the public pool because i am self concious of what people will say if they notice my rib hump. I want to know if surgery is a good idea and if it will reduce my large rib hump? Please any information i can get would be helpfull.
