i am the mother of a 14 years daughter who just found out from her x-rays that she has a 49 degrees scoliosis, we have the appointment @sick
kids in september. sadly that it just happens at this time she was supposed to be very excited to get in ib program at her first year in high school.
i am very worry and don't know what she might end up.
so far she has no pain, that is the good thing at the time being. i just noticed that she has an uneven hip, therefore we had the x-ray done and confirmed the case.
now as a mother i wonder if she needs to go through a surgery, how she might be affected from being away school for 6 weeks? can anyone let us know if there is home tutor provided for this case in brampton, ontario?
is surgery the only treatment for this 49 degrees? as i searched online from other sites said normally brace is only good for 20-30 degrees. guess my daughter's case might need a surgery. what are the risks involves?
at this moment she already completed all level of swim and first aids level. she is waiting to teach swim when her age allows. wonders if this would affect her ability to swim after surgery if she is going to.
