Surgery for hemiplegia
Hi all I'm new to the group.... my son is 5 and was diagnosed with mild CP just before the age of 2. He's had serial casting, splints, Physio, hydrotherapy and Physio regularly. He's recently just had his first go with Botox which they've said didn't have the effect they were hoping for. His surgeon has talked about stunting the growth in his good leg ready to lengthen his "tricky leg." I don't really like the idea of messing around with his good leg so wanted to seek advice/support. Have any of you experienced this?
