My son was born with a congential short femur (no PFFD). We will be going through leg lengthening procedure in a month using an external fixator. I wanted to speak to other Moms who have gone through this with their child and want to know what to expect. I know there will be pain, naturally, but how long? Will he be on meds for awhile? About how long until they weight bear? I just need some support. I am not looking forward to inflicting pain on my son.
