Default Re: Maddy's Stryker Frame Experience

Well it's one year ago today that Maddy went on the Stryker Frame. She continues to put on weight quite slowly, but she's eating like a horse so I'm not concerned. She said they were measured at school a couple of weeks ago and she was 154.2cm which is 5cm taller than she was when she was discharged! I find this astonishing and she says she wasn't wearing shoes, I will have to get my tape measure out and have a check!
Mum to Maddy aged 14. Maddy is a patient at Great Ormond Street Hospital and had a growth rod inserted in November 2007. In March 2011 the growth rod was removed because the curve became too strong. In May 2011 Maddy had anterior release, 2 weeks traction on a Stryker Frame and then spinal fusion.
