I am a 40-year-old woman who was born in 1978 with a right club foot. I was casted and wore shoes with the big metal rods between them. I also had surgery. I have an artificial heel, and heel cord. I had this all done at Boston a children’s Hospital and the doctors told my mother that I could have another surgery as I grew older depending on how much pain I had.
Well, now I am ready to do so and trying to find as much information as I can and reading and wanting to hear others experiences and their stories. I am in constant pain and have chronic pain due to this. I have also suffered many knee injuries due to my foot and the way that I walk. I have also had knee surgery. My 16-year-old son is an amazing basketball player and I would LOVE to be able to play with him. I can’t run I can’t bend my knee all the way. I’m beginning to lose hope….
Email me if anyone wants to share their story.
