No Surgery on the Horizon

Nick’s valgus (leg turning out)  is coming from his tibia. No need to put another 8 plate in, and his tibia still has more growth so the plate that is there might still correct it. If not it can be corrected as part of Nicks final tibia lengthening. Tibial lengthening wont be till he’s around 16.

So other than having the Precice rod removed from his tibia and the 8 plate there is nothing surgically on the horizon and I don’t actually know when those need to be removed.

Nick’s still FREE and I am still, and forever grateful!

  1. This is when you can remind other parents that there are “periods” in lengthening and it’s not their whole childhood.
