heel pain and club foot

Posted by MelissaW on 7/28/03 at 11:52 (125441)

I was born with a club foot on my left foot, I am 23 years old and when I was an infant I had corrective surgery and wore special shoes and braces on my legs to keep my feet from turning in. Recently, I have been to a doctor because the pain in my left foot and ankle had gotten so bad I could not walk. It was also insanely swollen. I have been diagnosed with bursitis, osteoarthritis, degenertive joint disease and something with the calcaneon tendon. What are my treatment options? I have a consultation with a surgeon soon and I want to be somewhat informed. Thank you for your time.
