CP and treatment
I have diplegia. I have had a two operations when I was younger and botox injections. My specialists confirm with my 2.5 ops done and due to my foot angle it will only ever get worse - they have mentioned an Ankle Fusion. I have AFO and footwear but it is already getting unbearable. Then pain is one thing, it's the lack of the sleep I cannot really deal with. I am on co codamol and baclofen but it's not working - for me. Has anyone had experience of an Ankle fusion - what is involved and how did you find recovery from the op, what orthotics do you now use, how to you move around? I have a follow up in the first week of September 2015 so would like some idea of what could be in store for me.
