The curves have regressed, yes. After the posterior fusion surgery in October 2002, the curves were approximately 20 to 30 degrees each, corrected from its origin of between 90-100 degrees. Prior to surgery my lower curve reached approximately 98 degrees if I recall correctly.
The latest xrays show that the curves have increased (or in a more "correct" medical term.. it has regressed/returned to ...) to between 40-50 degrees. Both upper and lower curve.
No wonder I've had severe pain and aches since carrying and giving birth to Ilan.
Indeed the reality is that I had always known the curves are regressing. Denial is a silly, but sometimes unavoidable thing.
Sometimes I get discouraged, dealing with this Scoliosis for the past 20 years has been challenging, emotionally and physically. But when I look at many many others who are in worse situations, I thank God for this life that I have with its many blessings.
Onward my friends, it's onward.This is the only way to deal with this. Never look backwards.
So I will continue to do what I can for myself and my Scoliosis today. No use thinking about what could have, should have and would have.
This Scroth Method. I pray it works.
