Hi my name is Georgina Sims, I'm 23 years old and I'm a spinal patient. At the age of 11 I was diagnosed with lumbar scoliosis (curvature of the spine) it is unknown why scoliosis occurs some say its hereditary or due to other things. I believe my scoliosis was hereditary but I also believe my size of boobs also plays a problem in it as well. As soon as I hit puberty my breast didn't stop growing at one point I had to wear a 40G bra, in my family big boobs runs in it. When I was 16 I had to have spinal surgery to have a metal rod and 5 screws implanted into my spine, to stop the curvature from crushing my organs. I had to lose weight for my spinal operation, I will admit I was overweight, no denying it. I ate my feelings and I would pig out whenever I was depressed or anxious because I couldn't control that. I've lost over 5 stone and I'm now at a healthy weight for my age and height but sadly my figure has shrunk but not my boobs, my boobs are now a 38E and they aren't the prettiest either, they make me feel sick. I'm now in a wheelchair permanently as my operation wasn't as successful as it was meant to be, my spine is full of arthritis and bone spurs and its getting worse I'm still under my spinal hospital. But I'm noticing that the top of my back/ spine just can't take the weight of my chest! I have constant neck, spine and shoulder pains. No matter how many bras I buy nothing helps. I have to wear a bra 24/7 and its awful I get a lot of red indents in my shoulders, chaffing and sores. I've asked the NHS to help me with my breast reduction but they reject me, even though I fit the criteria for the surgery as I'm a spinal patient but because I'm so young and haven't had kids yet that I don't know my own mind or body. This is my last resort I have no other avenue to take. I haven't got the sort of money private clinics ask for the surgery but I'm hoping I can raise the money somehow.
