Was anyone else diagnosed super late in life?
I have definitely had scoliosis since I was young but it was only caught when I was 19. Looking back now I see why I have never been able to breathe when on my back or why it always seemed like I walked crooked.
It’s hard not to feel angry at everyone that didn’t notice…

    It’s okay I was late too. I just went in for a normal check up and the dr happened to notice my curve. Meanwhile for years it was curving and no one noticed. Regardless of starting treatment and stopping I’m at the same degree of 34 from age 16 - 19.
