I am 27 and I have been really struggling with my scoliosis. My dr's have told me that it is not a problem because it is only really more of a cosmetic issue since it is not causing me any physical harm. basically I have a hunch back and it has really damaged my self esteem. I feel unloved and unattractive. The surgery was not worth the risk because they told me and my family that I may never walk again from any complicatons with the surgery or healing process. I guess this is silly really. If it is purely cosmetic then why try to change who I am? but on the other hand I am just so down on myself and constantly thinking about it and afraid that other people see only this and not really me. if anyone can help please do because I am so confused about this. thank you so much.
