Julie, I would like to talk more with you -- my daughter, Lily, now has a 46 degree curve and will undergo surgery within the next month. I am curious as to wether you found any help with your situation. We haven't had a second opinion yet -- I guess we're afraid that we'll hear that we should do something totally different which would only add to the stress we're dealing with. Anyway, I would like to hear what the Doctor you see has to say about what Emily will need. Feel free to contact me.
