: Does anyone have any info on these surgeries?
: 1. Bilateral medial and lateral hamstring lengthening
: 2. Bilateral nectus transfer
: 3. Bilateral adductor releases
: 4. Achilles tendon lengthening
: I am 18 yrs. old with mild CP on the right side. I am considering thses surgeries and would like to speak to someone who has had all or some of these procedures.
My name is Robin and I spastic/hemi plegic cp. When I was a kid my doctor was considering doing a operation to release the tendons in my heel cords but the doctor told my parents it might possibly make me weaker and I may not be able to stand, so they decided against it. Be very careful when you make your decision, look at the pros and cons of the operations. Good Luck.
