Re: surgery in adults with cerebral palsy

A lot of us feel that way about us - we are feeling that adult CP is being ignored. The doctors keep telling us that there is nothing that they can do. Then there are other doctors that don't know what we are talking about.

That is bad about your hip. I hope it doesn't get any worse.

The only trouble is I am having so much pain now. I got told by one doctor my right hip could break at anytime and hip's won't last forever, and my muscles feel tight all the time. I hardly get any sleep at night as soon as when i turn over at night my hip crack's and is agony! also starting to get a lot of pain in ankle. I do have botox injection's every six month's but don't find they are helping much now.
I just feel when we reach adult's with CP we get forgoten about.
