My Brief StoryI had scoliosis when I was 8 years old, when I had the surgery my curve was 139 degrees’, and I was 15. You are wondering why I take all that time. It’s because where I come from (Haiti) It’s hard to get visa to come to United State. When I finally get the visa I was 15. Before my surgery the doctor said that I have Marfan syndrome, but he told me that I don’t have to worry about it. After my surgery I went back home (Haiti),I was 16.I did not care or worrying about it bit ,I was only careful because I do not wanted to injure my back. When I was 18 I came back to the U.S after Haiti massive Earthquake. One night when I was watching a show “Untold stories of the ER” there was one women who had Marfan but her case was really scary. Since that day I start looking for answer. I did not find any good ones. Now I am 19 and I weight 120lb I do not have any pain or anything but my legs and my arms are longs. I don’t know what to expect and what to do.
