Hi

My is 17 in normal stream of education. He seemed fine but has a painful calf whenever he walks. He has hydrocephalus too. He is now wanting to get help in learning to drive. However I have no means to support that. Any advise will be helpful.
He is bow leg but presumably if you ask your doctor for advise about correcting they will direct you to the appropriate surgeon. The other is stretching leg while she is resting. My son is not too concern whereby I did not seek any help in the area.
