Hiya , my son is 12 years old and he had multilevel surgery on both his legs on the 21st of June . He could walk before his operation but still used his wheel chair . His knees were bent constantly and he was constantly in a crouched stance. I was given the option of this surgery June 2016 and they gave me three months to make a decision , it was a no brainer as I had to give him a chance. He had his surgery the 21st June 2017 and we are back in hospital now for his intense rehabilitation which has been brilliant ( it's our 2nd week and we go home tomorrow. My son can now walk brilliant with a walking frame and in a few weeks they say he'll be ready for tripod sticks. The physio mentioned today that she thinks he may be ready for school for Sept but I don't think he will be. She Said he could go to school in his wheelchair ( something he's never done ) and use his frame around the classroom. My son has autism as well as cerebral palsy and is a very anxious child and hes now worrying over going back to school in his wheelchair and walking frame. He said he wants to go back when he's walking ( independently ) . I m made up he's making brilliant progress but he's so so anxious anyway and the thought of him going back to school in his wheelchair and walking frame is gonna make him worse. Any advice anyone please ? xxx
