so 9/1 finally came! can u believe its actually a good podiatrist. i am so pleased that my pcp gave me such a good referrel. basically my feet are deformed. he showed me xrays that almost made me cry. none of my bones or joints are aligned correctly in eaither foot. i am heading for major surgery. atleast 3 bones fused some tendons cut and something in my heel lengthened. i dont know everything yet. i have to have an mri done to mkae sure there are no growths or tears anywhere. i will have to wear a richie brace for the rest of my life after surgery. right now i am wearing a cam walker on my right foot. so now i have to drive with the left. let me tell u that is an adventure. has anyone gone thru anything like this before?
