My name is Dyana, I am 24 years old, and I was born with unilateral pffd. The birth defect affected my right leg. I have about a 4 inch difference now. I had the Ilizarov procedure done when I was 8, and I am currentyly undergoing a procedure similar to the Ilizarov, but it utilizes a Taylor Spatial Frame. I had curvature of the bone below the knee, and I am getting it corrected. I have read several blogs here and have become very enlightened with everyone's stories. We all share similar struggles, and it's good to know that we are not alone. Well I am going to try and continue to keep this blog up and hopefully meet some very interesting people via this website. Please feel free to write to me anytime! I hope everyone is well. By the way, I am from Miami, Florida. Anyone near the area?
