Re: Downhill after 30?
Seeing as no one has answered you yet, I'll try to help you out a little bit. First of all, I know very well what it is like to need help with cp while in your 30s and to have nowhere to go. I am there right now, having more problems as time goes on because of two failed surgeries done by a children's specialist. On this very message board someone did say that there is a hospital in St. Paul, Minnesota, as well as two in California, that do deal with adults with cp. If you are interested in those I will post the info on them that I found from someone else. Other than that I honestly don't know what to tell you. I think you're better off dealing with doctors who deal with ankles generally than children's cerebral palsy doctors. Emphasize that you are trying to go back to work. Let me know if you want the specialists' info or if you want to just talk. Also, if anyone else has heard of any more adult cp specialists (I'm in the Northeastern US) PLEASE post them for us!!! I can't get to the others because I have no one who is willing to fly with me.
