You are here

21 year old with PFFD

Hi my name is Yesenia, I am on here because I want to see what people have accomplied or done to make them walk better. I been learning lightly alot these days about my condition, never really wondered or cared sadly. I just learned not to learn ago that I have PFFD, when I was about 1 1/2 year old I was amputeed on my left foot so that they can make a stump out of it. I wear a Prosthesis. I've been seeing alot of doctors trying to see if there is any chance that either a total hip or artificial hip could be done. I tell you it is tough even in how the economy is right now. The only reason I am trying to get a hip, is that I get alot of pain in my back because of the fact that I have to lug my prosthetic leg. There are times that I have called out of work because of severe plain in my stump. I try to make myself work at least 40 hours a week in order to pay my bills and I been denied on SSI. Really I'm here because I want to see if anybody out there or if theres a possibility of hip Surgery in my condition.
