Its about my daughter who is 6 years old. She broke her leg for an unspecified reason 8 months back. After treatment the leg is alright but she started getting swelling in her ankles on both legs predominently in left leg. Docs said its edema and we gave her ample rest with strapping and all. The swelling came down a bit but her foot got a diffirent look, when we took x-rays, the last bone in the foot got deteriorated, after 2 months it affected her femural bone as well. Docs says its bone neuropathy and care is the only option and no solution as such for a permanent treatment.

pls help me in this regard with respect to any surgery or treatment which will heel this permanently.

Warm Regards

  • You can get infection in the bone that can lead to degeneration of the bone, and also I hate to bring this up but bone cancer - has anyone checked her for either? Bone infection can be checked by MRI or Nuclear Medicine bone scans, and usually bone CA is a biopsy.Good luck

  • Thanks a ton for your response. We did took a fluid from the site and it was benign. what doc says is cancer is ruled out. However, need an insight of how best we can overcome neuropathy in general. Pls revert with any suggestions.
