My appointment Dr. Paley

Hey everyone its been awhile since I've been on the website, anyways let me tell you alittle bit about my self I am a 22 years old female with my left leg amputeed. When I was 1 year old I was I got my first surgery. and after that I was told that nothing else could be done to make me walk better, well that was what my parents said. All doctors always said to me and my parents that my condition is so rare that alot of the doctors didn't want to miss with it. I finally found out about Dr. Paley that he was moving right around the corner from me. I called and set an appointment. I was so excited when I got off the phone with them and saying that they can definetly help me somehow. I right away called my parents because I was very excited. And they also couldn't believe it. On July 17, 2009 at 3:30 pm I was at Dr. Paley's office with my mom and my dad. First of course I had to go and do some x-rays, then after at around 8 p.m. Dr. Paley walked in my room saw my x-rays and explained to him that I want to be able to walk better. (I was amputeed) I explained to him that I am a very outgoing person, and on weekends and that sometimes I like to go to clubs with friends. Dr. Paley was probably in the room less then 20 minutes and gave me a choice to do surgery on my leg, which of if he can do anything to make me walk better, I was not going to think. I just said I would do the sugery. I've been thinking about this to get better ever since I think I started walking, so I wasn't going to go and think more. My surgery was schedule on August 19, 2009. The surgery was done and was in the hospital at St. Marys Hospital, was there for three days. Everybody there was very nice and helpful. So far now I am trying to recover. I do see alittle bit of difference just the way that I was sitting, can't till about the walking yet. Hopefully less then 2 months I will have an answer.....
