My Story – Lorrie Schroder

By Lorrie Schroder

I have been going to Mayo Clinic since 1985. When I was 6 years old, a doctor gave me an injection into left buttocks of Terramycin, and within minutes my left lower leg was paralyzed (motor and sensory). Terramycin is very acidic. After six months, I was able to walk. Sensation returned, but I was left with a foot drop due to the paralysis of the anterior tendon. I had my foot fused in 1985 at Mayo, and due to left ankle, I overuse my right hip. I have been receiving treatment for my hip since 2001. I have received excellent treatment from the doctors at Mayo and would recommend Mayo to all.
