Surgery - JAJO25

Procedure or Surgery Associated with Pleomorphic Undifferentiated Sarcoma (also called Malignant Fibrous Histiocytoma). Posted on July 28, 2012 View this journey (10 Experiences)

The hamstring controls much of the backward lift of the leg and the stopping of the forward motion of your leg as well as some of the lifting power of the lower leg and foot. I was missing that piece. Amazingly I could walk fairly well with little assist the day after surgery. It took months to train new muscles to take over certain movements and some things I either do a different way or not at all. I can not run without looking like the Hunchback of Notre Dame, but I still have my leg and I can walk normally for moderate distances. Imwas allowed to heal and strengthen for about 6 weeks before moving on for chemo. So in the mean time I was whisked in to have a port placed.
