When I was diagnosed with scoliosis May 2018 I was told to consider bracing for 23 hours a day. On my 2nd visit with a new doctor at Phoenix Children’s Hospital I was told that bracing wouldn’t be an option and that I would have a T4-L4 spinal fusion two months later on December 11, 2018.
I am now 5 months post-op and free to do whatever I want. I had a very quick recovery and I’m really happy with how far I’ve made it in the last year.
The Curvy Girls group was one of the first things I found to learn about scoliosis when I was diagnosed and the people I’ve met through it have made my journey much easier, so I’m extremely excited to become a co-leader of Arizona!
