Hi! My name is Samaya and I’m 10 years old. I want to share my story about Clubfoot (Sorry if my grammar is a little off). So I don’t know how many months I was when I got my first surgery but I was very young. I couldn’t walk until I got the surgery.
I also got another surgery when I was 4. I remember a lot of stuff from when that happened. I stayed in the hospital for a week and then stayed in a wheelchair for 6 weeks. My mama took me to a garden and I wanted to pick some flowers but my mama said no because you weren’t supposed to because it was a public garden. I also remember I said hello to some people there.
I still feel pain from my Clubfoot. When I get up in the morning I feel a lot of pain and in the afternoon I also feel a lot of pain. Probably because I have arthritis. But at least I got my two surgeries. I didn’t try the Ponseti method. I haven’t heard of it until I looked at a video.
Anyways if you read this don’t give up your dreams. I take swimming classes and it’s fun. I can’t play soccer or football or anything that really involves running unless I want my feet to hurt.
Thank you for reading my story if you did.
