k'smom Posted March 5, 2011 Report Share Posted March 5, 2011 A couple weeks ago we noticed Kay had a knot just below her knee. We asked her ortho about it this past week and after being xrayed, found it she has some bone tumors. The ortho believes them to be osteochondromas. She also has something showing up that is called fibrocortical defects or nonossifying fibromas. In May, they are going to take the tumor off of her knee that we found, because it is the largest and the others are just forming. I don't know why they don't want to take all of them at the same time, but we are supposed to discuss that further at her next appt.She was supposed to see a cardio that specializes in POTS and the genetisist, but the night before her appt, my best friend passed away and we had to reschedule. So my questions are this. Do you have to take specific precautions with POTS patients and anesthesia? Is anyone familiar with these types of tumors? I'm told they are considered benign.
