I have scoliosis and it scares me to even think of a rod in my spine. You can clearly see the way my hips are uneven and my back hurts all the time. I am going to the doctor tomorrow and don't know what will happen. I don't want to be all druged up or get surgery and a big scar. I am only 18 and I have to work and start a life, and go to college. This scares me.
