Ah, thanks for the info and advice. 🙂 I’m sorely aware of my body leaning to the left now that I know what’s up.
I keep seeing things online about how braces are largely for children and people who get surgery, so I’m pretty nervous about that.
I don’t know quite where the scoliosis starts and stops, but my lumbar area is where the degenerative discs are.
My mom had to get surgery when I was little, and my granddad just got surgery yesterday. I just really hope that’s not in my future, based on the pain I’m being told about. And I already feel like I can hardly do anything, so the brace and recovery and all that just sounds like a nightmare, honestly.
Thanks again! I’m going to be making a list of questions for the orthopedist, and I’ll be sure to include that.
I appreciate the help and thoughtfulness. :3
