Scoliosis and T1D

Hello, I am Fiona and I am 14years old. So I was diagnosed with scoliosis (my spine was curved…) 6years backand was put in a clunky brace thing that was totally awkward…now in august I was told that I needed rods on each side of my spine with 18 screws… which was scheduled for October but was postponed to November because my a1c was 9.7. When I rechecked last month right before surgery I was 7.1 which was a major accomplishment in one month for me! I am still getting through recovery, but I am happy that its over with and I don’t have to deal with it!

Hey Fiona,

Sorry to hear what you have been dealing with! But, glad you are doing better and that it is over! How are you feeling now?
