Hello. At what point were you offered surgery? I have been suffering from numbness and tingling in my legs and they will not give me surgery. I feel like I’m being ignored. I now have a 42 degree curve and some nerve damage.

      I had my spine fused when I was 16. They usually don’t recommend surgery until your curvature reaches 45 degrees. I braced for 2 years, but it didn’t work and they recommended the surgery when my main curve reaches 52 degrees

      I had to push for my surgery. I wasn’t able to get surgery till both of my curves were above 50. Being pushy with your drs is the best options
