Lout underwent leg surgery.
Lout’s treatment for his left leg went well. Surgeons at CSC removed a plate and 8 screws from his fracture site that was fixated from his previous ORIF procedure. They then fixated a K-nail to stabilize his bones. Following the procedure, he was instructed to keep his leg elevated to prevent swelling and he was given pain medication. He had two weeks of physiotherapy at CSC before being discharged. Lout is now able to walk better and he does not experience any pain.
Lout says, “I can walk better and without pain. Thanks to the staff at CSC for helping me.”

In February, Lout was in a motor vehicle accident, fracturing his left thigh bone. He went to a clinic, where surgeons performed a procedure to insert hardware and realign the bone. However, the initial procedure has not proved successful. Lout’s fractured femur has failed to heal properly. He is unable to walk without support and experiences pain.
Lout and one of his sons traveled for four hours to reach our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC), for treatment. On May 9, surgeons will redo Lout’s leg surgery. They will remove the original hardware and insert new hardware to heal his fracture and relieve him of pain. Once he has recovered, Lout will be able to work again.
