double femoral osteotomy

8 weeks to go before my 7yo undergoes this operation, our first big one. Am interested to know how everyone has recovered from this surgery, how long before they were back at school, and all the day to day things like toileting etc. Any handy hints??? I know that a year is a ball park time line as to how long it will be before he is completely recovered, but just how long for other tihngs and does it affect things like regression with toileting or independance?

Re: double femoral osteotomy

Wow--best of luck to you! We had one Dr. who told us Noah needed this surgery, but we had another one who said that was too much surgery for him (every surgeon we saw had a different opinion of what should be done). We ended up having the perc. releases on hamstrings and heel cords this month.
Let us know how it goes!
