Re: Foot appt next Tuesday
for you Kara
Diagnosed with adolescent idiopathic scoliosis on the 10th April 2007. Seen at the Child Development Centre at the Medway Maritime Hospital on 18th June – then referred to Mr Noordeen at the RNOH Stanmore. Seen by consultant on the 13th July – x-rays revealed 77o thoracolumbar curve and severe rotation. Surgery planned in 6 months – had surgery on 26th November 2007. Admitted for pre-op on 23rd – stayed in over the weekend. Curve then 90o, suffering from pain and reduced lung function. Moved from HDU to ward after 24hrs, then into isolation for suspected infection after 3 days. Symptoms turned out to be a bad reaction to antibiotics.
