Re: Fulkersons Osteotomy Knee Surgery

I had a Fulkersons surgery done six years ago. I had been dislocating my knee for at least two years. This was the only surgery that they thought would help me. After I was done with physical therapy I felt great. I have pain in my knee now, but that is because of scar tissue built up. I also am missing parts of my knee that I was never born with. The doctor that is doing to remove my scar tissue said that it was a miracle that I could still walk and that the Fulkersons surgery is what made this possible after all the problems I had with it. Yes it is frustrating, but it is worth it in the end. I say this and I still have problems, but I went for a few years with none. I am 22 now and was very young to have that surgery done on my knee. I was only 16.
