My son was DXed with an Osteochondroma when he was about 10 yrs.old. He is 16 now and going into Vanderbilt Children's Hospital in Nashville, Tn on Tuesday, Dec. 29, 2009 to have it removed. I actually have a few questions.
1) Since the tumor is grapefruit size and on his femur will he have to have plates and screws?
2) How long will he have to walk on crutches?
3) Will he have to wear a cast?
Thanks Rhonda Mohar
