to op or not?

Hi I’m currently waiting to see a consultant about lenghtening my calf muscle< this is a cut at my heel and then being put in a cast. Does anyone had this op and did it help?

I know nothing about this op but my physio did toy with the idea of referring me to an orthopaedic surgeon because my knee is badly aligned (not an MS issue but the knee problem is making my walking worse). However, she says that on balance it’s best not to interfere because any orthopaedic operation would mean I was immobile for too long and this would be bad for the MS. The question I would ask is – how will the recovery from the op affect the MS? Will the result of the op justify the intervention?

Oh – and also – what does your neuro think about the cost/benefit?
