|This is what kyphosis looks like.|
I went to numerous doctors to try to fix my back and they told me as because I was so young, a brace is the only way I could be able to stand up straight. I absolutely refused to wear a brace so I just dealt with the tremendous pain and awful posture for years. As my curvature progressed, the more pain I was in.
Finally my parents and I had enough of this pain so we all did research on ways to treat my condition and we finally found an answer. We brought what we found to my doctor and he suggested that I get a spinal fusion. My parents were horrified by the news, while I was ecstatic for it. I would have a chance to have a straight spine.
