Information on PFFD

     I realize that many of you do not know what PFFD is. We didn't until Amaya was diagnosed, and still are learning as we go along.
     Here is some basic information;
PFFD can affect one or both legs
it can affect the femur as well as the tibula or fibula
PFFD affects the hip, femur and knee
there are four basic types varying in severity, Amaya has one of the least severe cases.

     This is just some basic information to help understand what it is and how it affects Amaya. You can always ask us any questions you may have and we'll try to answer them as best as we can.
     Here are two helpful websites www.pffd.org and  www.limblengtheningdoc.org  Both have lots of helpful information about what PFFD is and how it's treated. You can also google PFFD and find all sorts of information.
