my son is 11 years and half, still walking but has more and more difficulties to walk because he has retraction of the tendon. We live in France. In France doctors don't practice aponevrectomy or tenotomy because they immobilize the patients during 3 weeks. After 3 weeks of immobilization my son will not be able to walk any more
I have been told that in some countries, doctors immobilize the kids during 5 days only.
I would be very grateful if parents who have known this situation could answer me
-at what age your son has made the operation?
-was it aponevrectomy (muscle of leg) or tenotomy (tendon)?
-how long was the immobilization of your kid?
-has he plaster or something on the leg and how long does he keep it?
-in which town have you make the operation?
-have you seen improvement after the surgery
