Hi Everyone, I'm new to the forum & I'm really looking for a bit of information/help regarding a high tibial osteotomy. I'm due to go for the operation next Wednesday & I'm so nervous as I don't know what to expect. I'm also having a staple taken out that was put in when I was 12, it was placed on my fibular to stop it growing so my tibia could catch up but due to my condition I stopped growing. I have a condition called Schmidt metaphsyl achondroplasia which effects my back, hips, knees & ankles. My surgery is at Robert Jones Agnes Hunt in Oswestry & my surgeon is Mr Gallacher. Any help/info would be greatly appreciated.
Many thanks J

    Hello, this sounds very complicated to me because I have PsA (leading to OA) and the former didn't start until I was 37. I reckon that none of us know what to expect viz. surgery but the majority of my experiences have been positive, and for that I am grateful. I agree with Barbara12, please post again on LWA because many more look in on there and you may garner some helpful replies.

    I wish you well. DD
