Chronic lower back pain, scoliosis.

In 2012, I was diagnosed with scoliosis at the age of 17. I'm 20 years old now and I have the worse back pain ever. It hurts to stand for too long, sit up without support, to lay on flat surfaces, things that require my back for a extended period of time. My doctor referred me to an orthopedic surgeon and I see him in 2 days. I know it's mild scoliosis but I don't know the degree, they said it hasn't gotten worse but the pain has! I've already done physical therapy for 4 months, twice a week. So far, nothing has helped!
