Hi all, Can anyone on this forum offer advice, help and suggestions on how to treat a slipped myodesis. It causes me no end of pain and discomfort, to the point I struggle to walk and when I do walk I look like an OAP and cannot walk great distances. Is it at all possible to have surgery so the muscle is reattached back into the bone? Mine is torn away and is unstable, as a result the stump bends forward and rotates out to the side. I have already seen one surgeon who dismissed intervening with surgery and basically told me to reduce the amount of time I wear my leg or don't wear it at all. That to me is so wrong for so many reasons. Any help or advice would be fantastic, thank you in advance.
Can any above knee amputee tell me where I can get my torn myodesis reattached back to my femur in the UK? I have been to the QE in Birmingham but my consultant there has informed me he will not reattach my myodesis, that I just have to live with it and if I don't like the pain then reduce the amount of time I wear my prosthesis. This I find totally unacceptable and left me extremely angry. Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
