Read Diane’s personal story to learn more about her…
Diane Gracely was born with Charcot Marie Tooth disease. She has type CMT3. CMT is a neuromuscular disease that deforms the patient’s feet. And in some cases the hands also become deformed. CMT causes peripheral neuropathy, scoliosis, and degenerative disc disease. CMT causes severe muscle loss due to brain communication with the nerves, chronic muscle spasms, and other health problems.
Charcot Marie Tooth deformed Diane’s feet so bad by the time she turned 32 she was in a wheelchair. The pain to walk was overwhelming. Diane found an orthopedic surgeon in Hershey, PA that was very familiar with CMT. The surgeon told Diane he could reconstruct her feet and get her walking again. Diane opted for the surgeries. It was laid up for 3 years (1997 – 2000) while having 2 surgeries on each foot and recovery time.
More About Diane
In 2003, Diane had gastric bypass surgery. Due to being laid up for 3 years and having her feet reconstructed she put on a lot of weight. Her highest weight was 339 lbs. Diane now weighs 150 lbs.
Diane has another RARE disease. Fibrous Dysplasia of the temporal bone that has affected the whole left side of her skull. This is causing a lot of fluid to drain from her left ear when she lays down at night. It’s causing compression of her optic nerve in her left eye and narrowing of her optic canal. It’s caused bulging of her left eye, headaches, vision loss, and severe facial edema. She wakes up every morning with severe edema of her left eye, nose, and sometimes her right eye. See photo below. Diane has been coping with the facial edema for 13 years. It wasn’t till 2 years ago that Diane was finally diagnosed with the Fibrous Dysplasia. For 11 years doctors had no clue what was wrong with her.
Hit By Drunk Driver
On April 13, 2015, Diane was hit head on by a drunk driver. The accident caused a severe head injury and many herniated discs in her neck and back. This is when the doctors finally diagnosed Diane with the Fibrous Dysplasia while she was in the hospital after the accident. Due to the rareness of Diane’s Fibrous Dysplasia of the temporal bone she has been trying to find a surgeon who can help her.
Two years later Diane has finally had a surgery on November 22, 2017 for the Fibrous Dysplasia of her skull. The surgeon did a Mastoidectomy on her left ear to try and stop the ear drainage. AFTER the surgery Diane was told there is NOTHING more they can do for her. She will need to live with the compression of her optic nerve and optic canal and all of the edema for the rest of her life. The Fibrous Dysplasia is in all of her bones of her left side of her skull. There is no surgery to fix it.
5 months prior to the accident Diane had a 2 level neck fusion for a herniated disc. Because of the accident Diane had more herniated discs and needed another fusion, this time 4 levels. Diane had the neck fusion surgery November 9th, 2016.
Due to more herniated discs in her back from the accident she needs a back surgery in the near future.
There is a lot more to Diane’s personal health story, but let’s move on…
