We have been advised that it is the ripe time to perform muscle release surgery for our son. The hip, knee and ankle muscles will be affected. This seemed traumatic at first. The after effects are worrying us, also the surgery is said to prolong walking and standing anywhere between 1 - 2 years. How worthwhile is it is on our minds. Musty just recieved his Power chair which we were encouraged that he use at school. We seem to be getting mixed messages and we want to make the right decisions. what are your thoughts? Troubled mum.
