Ravinder+Hope+Dr.SAINI
« on: September 26, 2020, 02:57:56 PM »

Hi there, I am Ravinder and i am 29 year old. This is probably not the right paper to wright but i really would like to share my side of story. This was nothing less a miracle for me, i was about to lost my leg when i met this Doctor so i hearty want to post.

I will try to explain every bit and every inch of it. It was HOLY, a religious festival in India COLOR/DANCE/PARTY/BOOZE every possible fun. I was going to my home town when a fine f**king gentlemen came in full speed from the wrong side of the road and in a fraction of second everything changed. My right leg was crushed around ankle. I was lying in the pit side of the road devastated crying for help, you know and India a pizza delivery happens with in 30 min or less but ambulance or police OH NOOO they can be there till the person is dead or about to die.

 I lost lots of blood at the site of the accident. I lost conciseness i don't know when and how i reached the hospital. About 40 minute i was struggling on the road and try to reach out some help but no luck.

When i came in conscious i was in a government hospital doctor was waiting for my family to sign the consent for my operation.
I remember each word he said we will try to fix your leg but i you have to get it fix later they were concern to save my life.


The doctor just put some bandage and fixed it wit tubular frame/external fixator. They sent me home. Due to covid no doctor was performing procedures mean time my leg got infected and Pus was oozing out the wound. I tried to reach the doctors but everything was shut in INDIA.
Three months i suffered a lot when the lockdown got over i reach my initial doctor and said my nothing they can do he has to amputate my lag because the infection was too much.

After a month someone from my hometown come to see me and suggested me to meet Dr Saini. And i forgot to mention mean time i met 4 orthopaedic surgeon who already told me that amputation is the only option i had.

I never heard of his name but my brother asked me there is no harm to meet the doctor so me and my brother went to his practice place, i will never forget the moment he said we can save the leg.
it was the most happiest moment of my life.
He explained pros and cons of the procedure. I was ready do anything to save my leg.



when i met this doctor my leg was completely infected at the sight of injury.
7 - 8 cm bone loss just above the ankle joint. Tibia was completely crushed above the ankle. He first did the first aid and load my body with heavy antibiotics to control the infection. That took about 20 days to control.
During that  he fix my foot and ankle with K wire and rod. He explained how he will break my leg from the above and transfer the bone down. And he also mention that i will not have full  ankle movements but my leg can be saved from amputation. he has to fix my ankle joint but i can walk or use my toe muscles.  I will have the movements of my forefoot.


He 19 july 2020 he operated me and put my leg in a ring frame called Ilizarov. Operation took around 5 hour. My ankle was stabilise with the frame only. So while my bones growing above he is transferring the bone. So he is transporting the bone down.

I am able to stand with walker and can partially bear the weight on the leg and can walk few steps.

Day 1 had detailed discussion and admission.
Day 2 surgery was done

Stayed in the Hospital for 30 days under his observation. Dr Saini has his own hospital setup. I received utmost medical attention and care there. Pain was tormenting. I felt hopeful and awful with pain at the same time. My patella was crushed in the accident. My knee was fixed when i went to Dr Saini. I was there for the frame adjustment as it was not possible for me to come every other day. Regular Physiotherapy sessions were taken.
They made me stand on 10 day with walker. I was very scared because above my ankle the part was hollow.The gap above my ankle was almost 8-8.5 cm. only skin was there. I was frightened.

Not sure of that. but i was very happy after a very long time i stood. My knee movements are also getting much better.

Initial first 45 days he only lengthen( he taught me) and after 45 days he started compression over ankle along with lengthening 1mm a day.

I will post my initial picture after surgery and walking video.

Each time when a x ray clicked and there is an improvement felt like getting closer and closer.
more closer the time gets more impossible it become to bear. Sometimes the discomfort get your nerve.
because there is no time frame for this journey. Every day i wish to end this soon but well.
life went very uneasy mean while still is but hope and cope that's the only way. My level of patience is getting pretty much better and stronger. Go through each phase with X-ray picture. feel the joy and strength.

I visited hospital today, prolong assessment  and discussion.


I have lengthen 7.75cm so far, few more cms required to complete the bone loss. I am posting my today's X-ray and i would like know this will not considered in lengthening?

People are doing lengthening for their looks am doing to save my leg but this considered as lengthening too. Just that  i am no psychologically unhappy about my looks or in other words because i am not doing this to enhance my outlook so i am not eligible to be a part of this forum. I disagree.

Doctor decided to operate on me tomorrow, so the plan is to remove foot frame and he will fix my ankle. my foot will be free from any frame. As doctor described .
