Hello, just wondering if anyone could help me. My son James had flat feet and had surgery to correct this. The surgery involved breaking both feet, inserting a piece of cow bone and metal plates and screws. Horrific.. Unfortunately surgery did not work and he had to have the metal work removed, unfortunately some of the screws where broken in the foot and there are 6 or more half screws left in the feet. This is causing intense pain. James has been diagnosed with CRPS and is currently in transition from Alder Hey to the Walton Centre in Liverpool, in the meantime he is on crutches, cannot walk far and is on a cocktail of pain killers. What should I do, appointment at Walton Centre is not until August, is he just supposed to carry on with the pain. Alder Hey wont help as he has been discharged. Thinking of taking him upto A and E. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you. X
