On Wednesday 30th of August, I am having a leg lengthening.
They are going to break my bone and put on a brace with screws that I am going to turn 1mm per day, for 40 days. Then my leg will heal for 80 days before they take the brace off. It should be off for my birthday on the 20th of January.
I will spend the first few days in hospital and then I can go home. I will have to use crutches and I might need a wheelchair at the start. I will be able to swim with the brace on and this is how I will keep my leg strong.
The picture is of me getting the brace fitted earlier this year by my doctor, Mr Walsh.
I am feeling very nervous, but I know that I will be okay.
