Came across this story on the BBC website of medical marvel, grit and pain for a young boy. He suffered from fibular aplasia and was born with his right lower limb twisted backwards, without a fibula, ankle and had only three toes.
Michael Gays from Bramptom, Cambridgeshire is now 6ft 1 inch tall but has reached this stage after several surgeries to lengthen his leg, correct the muscles and tendons therein. Not deterred by his circumstances, Mr Gays plays golf and has an enviable handicap of eight. Now how many ‘normal’ people have this handicap?
Congratulations to the team of doctors at Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in Birmingham!
