Bunion Surgery And Cp
I have spastic diplegia that affects both my legs and I have bunions on both my feet. I'm due to go in to hospital for the first lot of surgery to remove the bunions in a couple of weeks.
At my pre op appointment I discovered that this surgery was a lot more major than I'd been led to believe as they are going to be breaking, straighting and pining my big toe and then breaking and moving all my other toes on my left foot.
This means that they are adjusting both points of balance by moving both my big and little toe. I'm very worried as the consultant has told me that becaie of the cp there will be complications but he doesn't know what until he does it.
Also I'm worried about what affect moving my toes will have on my balance, my balance is bad enough as it is and I can't begin to imagine what it will be like learning to walk again after. Or if I will be able to still be as mobile as what I am now after.
I know that these are all questions that people probably don't know the answers too but it doesn't stop me being worried and scared by them. I wondered if there was anyone else out there that has had this type of surgery done before and what it was like and what effect it had on your walking etc....
Any advice or expierence would be good to hear.
