Ton HOPK (AHK.) STAH DrLamb Birth defect is her problem By Lawrence K. Lamb, M.D. DEAR DR. LAMB - I was born with a short leg. My left leg is several inches shorter than my right. I'm 20 now and about five feet tall, weighing 105 pounds. Also, I have no toes on my left foot. The foot ends about where toes should be. I started walking with crutches at age 2, and when I was 7 was fitted with my first elevated shoe. While I was growing the shoe was elevated regularly. By the time 1 was 18 my left shoe was built up about 10 inches. It was very clumsy. About a year ago my mother found a great orthopedic shoe specialist. He made a special shoe for me and may 1 say, Doctor, 1 was just about ready to cry when he put the shoe on my toeless foot. My right shoe was a black patent oxford, laced type with a half-inch heel. My new left shoe was also all- black patent. It had an ankle strap and laced onto my foot with 12 eyelets. The heel was a full 10 inches and made of aluminum. The platform was solid cork. My foot fitted into a lot of cotton padding. I was surprised how well I could walk with it. Doctor, I am really happy with my unusual shoe. I almost always wear slacks so my shoe is not noticeable. My boyfriend has taught me to dance, and I even go on long hikes with him. Now, the real question I must ask you. Three months ago my girl friend, who is the same age as I am, was in a very bad automobile accident. She had to have her right leg amputated above the knee, leaving her with a six-inch stump. She now wears an artificial limb. She walks with hardly a limp. After seeing how well my girl friend gets along, 1 wondered if I would be belter off if 1 had my left leg removed WIN AT BRIDGE and was fitted with an artificial limb. My family doctor says the decision is up to me. I would really appreciate your opinion. DEAR READER - That is not a decision you can make without a careful study of the details of the problem. First you need the benefit of an expert evaluation of the problem by a specialist in orthopedic surgery. The condition of your shortened leg makes a lot of difference. This may determine whether or not you would want to keep the knee joint, should it be advisable and you wanted to have surgery. It is not a decision that has to be made tomorrow. Why don't you ask your family doctor to arrange for you to see an orthopedic surgeon and after you have all the facts as they apply to your particular case then you will be in a better position to make a good decision? If you were my patient I would want a consultation with a specialist before trying to help you make your decision. It is important to have good support for your shortened leg or proper replacement if that seems in order. It makes a lot of difference to your spine. If one leg is shorter than the other it puts a strain on all the muscles up the spine as your body tries to balance the inequality. So, I do favor being sure that you have taken the right measures now and not delayed too long, Whether it is a built- up shoe or an artificial limb, it is important to have the right balance - that means the right length.

Jim: "Morehead disagrees completely with North, as we do. South's two-spade call was the cheapest rebid he could make. Since it was a bid of a new suit in a forcing sequence, North could not pass. But South had made it possible for North to sign off at three diamonds or three hearts." Oswald: "North had too good a hand to sign off. He could have cue bid to three clubs and then bid four spades to invite a slam, but he had no excuse for bidding the slam on his own."
