Before surgery After surgery
Scoliosis is a disorder where a person has a sideways curve of their spine. Curves are often S-shaped or C-shaped. In most people, there is no known cause for this curve. Scoliosis is slightly more common amongst girls with Trisomy X.
I was diagnosed with this when I was 11 years old. I wore a Boston Brace for a year and a half, however it did not help my curve. In February of 2012 (at 13 years old), I had surgery to correct my scoliosis. It was a life-changing surgery.
