Personal History:

My name is Karen Peterson, 55 years old. I live in Kenosha WI. As a child x-rays showed Melorheostosis in my pelvic area. I have had no symptoms until recently. After a fall in June of 2009, I started having pain in my tailbone. I saw a doctor, but did not have x-rays at the time. The pain didn't go away over time. So, I returned to the doctor in Jan. 2010.  So, after having x-rays, CT scan, and bone scan, I have been diagnosed with Melo. No one in this area treats Melo. I'm currently waiting for a referral to an Orthopedic Surgeon at Froedert Hospital in Milwaukee, WI.
