Had a rare knee surgery done
« on: October 30, 2010, 02:12:06 PM »
Hi everyone, i just got out of the hospital, had a rare knee syndrome, took me a year to find the right doc who knew about it.

My fibula head would slip out of the socket when my knee was fully bent, making wrestling practice impossible, and grappling was my life.

The surgeon dug a hole through my shinbone and connected a hamstring tendon to keep the fibula in place.


Has anyone heard about that syndrome? The doc told me there had only been 50 documented cases.

My daughter had that done plus two screws put in two hold the knee cap in place.  Did not know it was rare...just was told she needed it and did not know the part about the  hamstring until Friday.

The rare part is the fibula subluxation not the ligament transplant
