Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
If the leg was broken at the age of 3 and1/2 then if not properly treated at that time could have resulted in mal union or deformity.But since now you can walk jump and even run then its fine but if the deformity is giving you complex and feel shameful then you can go for a corrective surgery for which you can consult a Orhto surgeon.It will be painful and expensive if you do it in a private hospital but the expense will be comparatively low in a government hospital.You can discuss the benefits and the probable complications and drawbacks of the treatment with the Orthosurgeon and if the benefit is more and worth taking risk then if you feel it necessary you can opt for the treatment.
Thanks

my mother has been recently having seizures. she had polio when she was 2months old. she is now 54yrs old and she has been to a neurologist. how ever she is slow minded and not in the best of health. she has fibromyalgia and alot of joint pain. can this polio cause her seizures and if so why?

doctor1 MD

Yes, I had polio at age 5 in 1954-1955(6months on crutches and in braces). I seemed to recover well. I played sports, educated, etc. I am just wondering if the following symptoms reflect progression of post polio. I am exhausted and tire easily( I used to run marathons). I have low bone density and have been given vitamin D. I am and have been for many years depressed (antidepressants do not help). I have always had terrible sleeping problems to the point of developing dependency on sleeping medication. My ADHD seems to be worse and without Ritalin, which I take sparingly, I can not focus well. Maybe I am just a high functioning post-polio neurotic but I just can t seem to get going anymore and I am not sure what to do. I am early retired, unwillingly and want to live a better life.
