I just wanted to say Hi. I'm new to this website and wanted to introduce myself. My name is Erin and I am 32 years old. I am married and have a son named Erik. He's 2 (sheesh!) I was diagnosed at age 7 and wore the electronic thing from Medtronic for about 3 years...(didn't help it get better but I think slowed it from progressing). I have always had an S curve and the top is 60 and the bottom is 49. I now go to a chirporactor, whom I love, once a month and have little to no pain. I am a competitive tap dancer and think that the excersize and the chiro has helped with the pain factor. When I had my son my epidural did not work which sucked but it made me realize that I can do anything! I did want to find out if anyone knows any support groups in Souther California that do not push surgery. I tried one from the National Scoliosis Foundation and all they talked about was the surgery. I think the surgery is great but some of us don't need it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
