Distal Femur Osteotomy 12/1/14

Hello I really wanted to add my story to the site!  I have read many helpful stories about knee surgeries and different things that people went though and I hope that what I have to say can help someone too.I had my surgery on my right leg December 1, 2014 and I am a 27 year old female. But let me go back to the beginning.  As a baby I was bowlegged and my parents worried about my legs but eventually they straightened out.  I walked normal for years, but around 7th or 8th grade my mom noticed my knees were knocking as I was walking.  Unfortunately I never grew out of this.  So I had...

My MPFL story 2014

My story, my worries and my hopes for Friday!

This has seemed like a long process to get to where I am and unfortunately feel I still have a long way to go.On December 17th I took my son, and the children I look after in my home outside to play in the snow. I went to get my sons boots out of our truck and my knee let go with a huge snap and I was on the ground. Luckily my husband was home and could help take our then 12 month old son, the rest of the kids and me back in the house.The first night I iced it, rested it and hoped it would be better in the morning but when it wasn't we went over to the hospital. It hurt a lot and with...
