My friend with athetoid Cerebral Palsy is about to have a hip surgery that involves cutting her left thigh bone. I'm not sure but I think she will have a femoral osteotomy. Have any of you had or know anyone who had this surgery? Any advice you guys can suggest to support her through this? She's worried about the surgery itself and being bored while being in the cast. I'll keep you updated on when she has the surgery and her progress afterward.
I hope I never have to have hip surgery myself. Honestly hip surgery scares me. I had a lot of hip X rays as a little kid and never had any issues Thank God. I find it interesting that my friend is an athetoid and needs this surgery. I would think someone with athetoid CP would have less issues with spasticity since they have a mix of loose and tight. Eh, what do I know?
