Today we were up bright and early at 5.30am to get organised for my MRI at 7am followed by Violet's Orthopaedic Surgeon Appointment at 9.10am who we didn't end up getting in with until 11.45am!
Once in there, the surgeon was lovely and explained everything thoroughly. Violet's Physio from the Kids Hospital also attended the appointment.
He was very surprised how tight she was for a Hemiplegic.
Surgeon agreed not to continue Botox or Serial Cast Violet's Leg/Foot anymore, as it is just not working for her.
He is adamant she will have surgery in the next year to help correct her foot but also added that even with surgery, she will never have full control over her foot.
He has ordered an MRI under General Anesthetic of both her legs to look at how much muscle she has in her leg to know exactly how he is going to tackle her. He will then further discuss with us what will be involved for her.
He also wants her to have another Hip X-ray to check on her hips as they haven't been checked since 2008 and her hips are clicking lately and she complains they are sore.
He wants Violet to also get fitted for a UCBL foot orthosis for her left foot as she is still in-toeing on that side aswell.
Violet is due to get fitted for her new AFO on the 21st April, so she will be casted for her UCBL orthosis then.
We then have another appointment with the Orthopaedic Surgeon after her MRI.
