New Doctor Visit 9/26/16

 

Robbie relaxing at the Stephenson Cancer center as we wait to meet his new doctor. The good news is that we have finally found a local orthopedic cancer doctor and he will work with MD Anderson to help Robbie. He thinks the swelling in his foot is due to poor circulation from his leg surgery and an infection in his foot. My other concern is Robbie’s leg contracture, which keeps him from being able to straighten his leg for walking. The doctor told us the location of his original tumor on his tibia is one of the more difficult locations in the leg for surgery and recovery. He said Robbie’s recovery is still fairly recent. For now, continue using the leg brace and physical therapy. I’m so thankful to finally have a local specialist.

  1. So glad you finally found a local doctor to take his case! Kacey and I don't visit at Stephenson Cancer Center but I believe they do have therapy dogs there.
