Well I had a Fulkerson Osteotomy on June 16 of this year and I still cannot kneel down or get up from sitting in the floor. I have to have a shower chair because I can't stand upo long enough to take a shower without it.For the firdst two weeks of rehab was torture but after that its not really bad it still hurts and your doctor should have told you that it would take a year for the bones to heal right.I am haveing the other leg done in 2 to 3 weeks so I have to start all over with the other leg. I have a question? Is it your leg or your back? Feel free to e-mail me if you need someone to talk to.

I am writting to you in hopes that you would answer my question. I am going in for a Fulkerson Osteotomy on March 8, 2002. I am looking for information on what the rehabilitation protocol for this may involve. I have had 2 arthroscopies and a Lateral Release and I am told that this surgery in considered 'MAJOR'. I am assuming that the protocol will be more demanding. I am looking for information that may be of help to my Physical Therapist since he has never done the Rehabilitation for this type of procedure. I, myself, am also interested in what is in store for me. I basically would like to know how long it may be.
