feeeling lop-sided

Posted by marine4life on 1/22/05 at 02:38 (167705)

While in the Marine Corps I was diagnose with pes cavus. Its something I've always have. Its how the Lord above built me. After prolong standing and physical training my achelies and heels would burn. Podiatrist from the national naval medical center
decided surgery would be the best course, considering numerous alternatives failed. The plan was to move both heels and lengthen the achelies. During the day of the surgery my doctor informed me that they were going to work on just the right
foot and decided that an achelies lengthening was not necessary and would be too much. I agreed. Everything went well and the surgery was a success. One year later a date was scheduled for my second surgery. With my first doctor gone the new doctors decided to do an achelies lengthening. I explained to them why an achelies lengthening was not performed the first time and they assured me that it wouldn't make a difference.......to make a long story short IT DID. It made a BIG difference. I feel lopsided now. My doctor told me not to even thing about running and try to keep off my feet as much as possible. My knees and hip takes a beating dayly. by 12:00 noon everyday my day is over cause im in so much pain. Nights are very long. I cant walk for more than 10 minutes at a time. it feels like its only getting worst. is there anything i can do? is this normal. should the same surgery have been performed on both feet..PLEASE HELP......THANK YOU

You are slop-sided that I agree with. For one thing your not seeing the right docters for another you have no clue to what your clueless mind is telling you. You should stay off your foot and try not to bend your knee,s too much for at least a year. While your resting your foot try finding a better board and try getting a better life as well,,,,
