Orthopedics

When I first started the process of distraction osteogenesis, I was surprised how little there was on the web about other patient’s experiences. I had never seen anything like this before, and there were many questions I had that I could not find answers for. While my surgeon answered medical and technical questions very adeptly, questions like, what to wear, would I be able to work effectively, what type of activity level would be realistic, what pain meds work and what are the side effects, how could I get some sleep with this thing on my leg, and other pointers were difficult to find. Hopefully people going through this process can benefit from my experience via this website/blog.
