at DDs 8 year check up the dr mentioned she may be developing Scoliosis but it was too soon to tell and we'll keep an eye on it. at her 9 year, a different dr looked over her back "mhm, mhm" was all he said. i asked if it still looked suspicious, got worse, etc and he said "well, we'll watch it"

Saturday, we were over my parents. SIL was there and noticed that DDs lower spine is thick. she showed me what she meant and it feels like theres tissue or something around her spine, or something, idk. but the lower spine is definitely thicker than the rest of her spine.

i have scoliosis and dont want her going through it too :( any ideas what the thickness is? i'm having the school nurse look at her back tomorrow to get her opinion. we'll go to pedi based on what is said then

I would trust the drs opinion before family members or a school nurse.
