That leg must be amputated, as trystine Stewart learned only more than two years after she started on his ill — initially the doctors did not treat the issue seriously and suggested that pain should pass with age. Alternative unusual operation was the complete removal of the legs, and on the decision the teenager and his family took several weeks. The result was selected, which was to keep the maximum mobility of limbs.

As trystine Stewart was so afraid of surgery that have marked the leg to be amputated, doctors mistakenly removed his other. However, according to relatives, the consequences he accepted bravely, although he loved to play football and were generally physically active.

Family members of a teenager reported that initially unusual leg could not shock them, but after a while they got used to it. The teenager was reported to be quite free to move without crutches, learning to run with a prosthesis and hopes to become a Paralympian.

At the end of last year it was reported that in the Tver experts managed to avoid amputation patient after he fell under a freight train, and the thigh was held by only a few centimeters of soft tissue and the thinnest of the artery. The leg had to be shortened by about 10 inches, but with the help of a special apparatus that has been almost completely offset by extruding the bone.
