    Story

    My son hhad Scoliosis since we found out at 6 years old and I took him for a routine check up after he fell over and I just wanted to check it out.
    Nothing prepared me for the first x-ray and seeing my sons spine look like an 's' shapeSince he has been 6 years old he had had to wear a very restrictive brace around his torso for no less than 16 hours a day (doctors recommended 23 hours a day) but I could not bear to see him uncomfortable so I would allow him rest .

    We went to all appointments for years and years at Alder Hey Children's Hospital and we had an amazing consultant and surgeon Dr DavidsoAfter years of my son dealing with his condition, he finally got the go ahead for his operation as at 12 years old as he was old enough for the operatioThe operation consisted of metal rods and screws being inserted I to the vertebrae of the spine (the bits with holes in). The while operation took 9 hours and was in pain when he came For 12 months he is unable to play football or rugby or even go on fairground rides, which has been a nightmare for a 12 year old boy in the summer holidaHe has had to turn down birthday parties for his friends as all included contact sports like football or paintballing which my son has not been able to participate in and this has broke my heart. He has been unable to do all this until his spine The reason I have set up this page is because he has asked me on numerous occasions if we can have a family holiday to Spain, the same as when we went when he was 4 years old and he still remembers to this day how amazing tha
