Patient : I will have recontructive surgery in the near future. The surgeon gave me an option where both of my gracilis muscles will be removed from my thighs and used in other parts of my body. Im very nervous about losing anything from my legs because sports is important to me. I need to know how losing that muscle from both both of my legs will affect my moving.
