    All,

    My 12 year old kid had surgery Nov last year for accessory navicular removal (Kidner's) and then Evan's osteotomy for flat foot correction. While the kidney's site has recovered well, Evan's site has gone from doing well in March to delayed union (not confirmed) in May. She twisted the same foot while doing PE, no thanks to the pushy PE teacher. Is the delayed union normal in pediatric patient? Also, the surgeon did the vitamin D check and she is exactly on the lowest oak range (range is 20-90 something, she is 21); she is now taking supplements and the doctor has ordered ultrasound bone stimulator.

    Anyone has gone from doing well to possible delayed union? any other thoughts

    Thanks in advance.

    It is not normal for a union to be delayed.
    See how the ultrasound goes.

    Thanks Craig. Do you mean going from doing well to delayed is not ok OR just in general delayed union is not OK.
    In march x-ray, it had not joined yet, but there was no issue (no pain)
