It is so unfair you have to deal with all this at such a young age. I know it's difficult for me to wrestle with accepting the changes in my health status, but at least I'm in my late 50's. And as I'm sure you know from reading this board, so many of us are disappointed by various doctors and procedures. But I hope you keep searching, and try to get answers about
your leg going out. One serious fall, as you're acknowledging, could really have consequences for your life.
Have you been to a major medical center to have them at least review your case? I don't know if you're close to any. Of course, I had my surgery at one and was still disappointed. I wish I had more answers for you. Maybe others here can offer more information, but know I'm thinking about
you and sending you lots of hugs.
Also, have you thought about
getting some counseling to help you work through the emotional part of this? It might be helpful to you, especially if it's someone who's skilled in pain management. Even if they're not, just a good therapist can help you find your way through this, reach some level of peace.
