Re: Insertion of growth rod
I just wanted to say that for us it was the hospital that sorted the home-ed out and then we were contacted by our local hospital that sent out their school teachers. It was brilliant for us and gave me a couple of hours with my (then) baby while Erin did some work.
Mum to Erin, 10, diagnosed with 62 degree curve in May 04, aged 21 months. Serial casting '04-'07. Growth rods inserted June '08 under Mr Tucker at RNOH, Stanmore, UK. Surgery October '11 to replace a broken rod.
