Surgeries result ?!

Post by Ahmed Rawy » Tue Aug 02, 2016 8:42 am

I'm 23 with ROBPI and I've been recommended to undergo Triangle Tilt and Mod-Quad, I searched about adult surgeries but I couldn't find TT effect on adults.

So if anyone had TT surgery or Mod-Quad please I wanna know what it's like and the ROM you gained ( supination & external rotation ) .

What do you recommend for me ?

Never had that surgery. But I would go for a second opinion. I have heard people who have had this lose movement they did have but gain in others.

It's definitely possible to lose movement. It's not usually expected, unless the surgeon thinks that a loss in one movement to gain another would make more sense for activities of daily living or living life in general. Although sometimes the loss is also unexpected. I also would recommend getting another or multiple opinions-it never hurts to discuss it with more than one specialist-you will usually find other alternatives may in fact be better
