My dad has something called spina bifida... It's where your spinal cord isn't covered by your back bone. People say its not something that could be inherited from your parents and stuff like that, but my baby sister has it too! She's 2, and she has a different mom than me but has the same dad as me... Could I have spina bifida? When I touch my back, I can feel my spinal cord... I'm confused.

Two years ago at my annual physical my doctor said that I had scoliosis and sent me to a special doctor. I have had a back brace for two years now. Sometimes it is a pain, but I have gotten used to it. There have been two or three times I had to get it adjusted. I have to year it all the time except for physical activity and when I take a shower. Recently I have been getting really hot in it though. The people at the place were I get my brace told me to spray antiperperant on my stomach and back, but does anybody have any suggestions? Plus does anybody have any clothing ideas because right now I only have about 7 or so shirts that hide my brace. I also have a lot of sweatshirts for the winter but they are really hot. Any suggestions for clothing?? If someone could answer these that would mean a lot. And if you are getting a brace it is nothing to be worried about. At first it might be uncomfortable, but the people who make your brace and doctors help you. Dont worry about it too much!

i have it but my docs monitoring it. my friend has it really bad and just got surgery 4 they had to stick metal poles in her back and she's never gonna be able to ride roller coasters or do a lot of other fun stuff ever again. so if you have it SIT UP STRAIGHT!! unless u want to be like her. her surgery was a wake up call for me to sit up straight so i don't end up like her. also pray 4 her

i might have scoliosis, so i have to get x-rays done. my doc doesn't think i do, but he just wants to make sure...wish me luck. i have NEVER gotten an x-ray done b-4..so...yup! even if i do have it, it would prob b a very minor case, so i can STILL PLAY SOFTBALL!!!!!!

I have scoliosis,but I don't have an extreme version of this.When I first found out about that I have scoliosis,my first thought was "Great. I'll have to wear a brace." but I was wrong! Thankfully, since I have stopped growing and I'm also very short, the curve in my spine wouldn't curve more and more! So, if your doctor says you might have scoliosis, don't think the worst case scenario.

i would not be happy if i had that because 1:i always sleep scrunched up ,and 2: i had a leg brace when i was five a metal thing on my leg when i 8 and then another one when i was 11 and i do not want anything else!

i have scoliosis and i wear a back brace for it. it helps it feel better and relieves me of the pressure, there is no complete cure for scoliosis. back braces at most can only cure it about 50% and surgery can only cure it about 95%.
