    Exclamation Lumbar curve effecting digestion

    I firmly believe scoliosis with a lumbar curve has an impact on the digestion within the body.

    I needed to post this because I feel this area is being ignored. Scoliosis clearly pushes you're stomach to the side restricting you're abdomen, as a biologist I know this also means intestines will also be compressed.
    I am 17 years old,female. This all began when I was 14, I first had a small amount of stomach trouble, without being crude this includes excessive gas, especially after eating. This was before I even knew I had scoliosis, but looking back on photos it was clear my scoliosis had began to develop.
    I suffered this problem for just over a year, I have to admit it was embarrassing and I tried cutting all sorts out my diet to try and fix it, I was very confused as this had developed very quickly, just like my scoliosis.

    I am not just about to turn 17 , I was diagnosed in November, with a 37 degree lumbar curve. I then went back in March and curve progressed to 47, since November to now my digestion and stomach problems have been getting worse, for example my stool now is never very often whole, usually broken up or quite liquid like in the morning. My scoliosis has got very bad and I am due for surgery within the next three months. Apologies for the grossness.

    I cannot believe this is just coincidence, and that ibs has suddenly appeared in my life. Yes,this is a chance but the way everything has timed together I'm more certain than ever there is a link.
    I think this issue is hidden and not discussed, as it is embarrassing. I want to know if anybody has experienced anything like this, and whether or not their issues fixed after surgery.
    If you have a lumbar curve and if you have digestive problems, please share you're story and opinions.
    Doctors have said their isn't a link, but research on the Internet and also applying my story and knowledge I think more rest each needs to be done
