My son has been a permanent tip toe walker and is now 11. We’ve been told that due to lack of movement he will now need an operation to cut his tendons and have them lengthened/shortened. Has anyone else had this done that they can provide some insight into the procedure/recovery times ?
hes just started secondary school so don’t want him to have to miss a lot of time
Had no response. Has no-one any experience of this procedure ?
I would really like to help, but unfortunately this is out of my area of knowledge. Is it possible to phone the GP or hospital beforehand to ask about the procedure and recovery times?
I don’t have any personal experience of this unfortunately, but this article may assist in terms of some further information:
Of course with any procedure like this, it is best to speak to the medical professionals involved in your child’s care as they know exactly what is intended, but equally I do appreciate from personal experience that it is not always easy to get answers to your questions from such professionals!
Enrol him in ballet classes?
(ok, maybe that wasn't so helpful. sorry)
