When I was a child I had scoliosis. I had spinal fusion when I was 16. It was a horrendous operation at the time, but I got through it. I enjoyed about 15 years pain free after the surgery and had two beautiful children, both naturally. The last 10+ years have been total hell though. Deteriorated discs, arthritis, narrowing of one root sleeve and terrible sciatica, to name a few. I have been through pain meds, PT, cortisone shots, you name it. Now I just deal with it and try not to talk about it. Unfortunately, my 13 year old daughter was diagnosed with the same problem 1 year ago and is scheduled for surgery February 5th. I am pertrified for her. I have no real support system and am so scared to watch my little girl go through the same thing. I don't want her to know how bad it might be. I feel so guilty. And unfortunately, I have to keep all these feelings to myself. It's all very daunting.
