: i am 29 years old and was diagnosed with kyphosis around the age of 13. i wore a back-brace 23 hours a day for much of my freshman year of high school and then discontinued it's use shortly thereafter... never saw another doctor (about my back) again until recently... as a child, my doctor told me that surgery was not an option for kyphosis. the doctor that i just saw here in nyc informed me otherwise... i'm wondering if anybody out there knows the risks (and benefits) involved with such corrective surgery... or better yet, has anyone out there gone thru it? ... i'm researching and considering the procedure and i'm very anxious to hear from those who've been thru it... looking forward to hearing from someone soon... thanks in advance for your help.

i need lots of help cause my back hurts
