Help and advice please

Recommended Posts

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.

I recommend you see a local physiatrist- a doctor of physical medicine. The are heavaly trained in amputee care. If surgery is a realistic option the physiatrist will refer you to the proper surgeon and consult with them. Stay strong!
