Before my surgery I was diagnosed with Synovitis which created a pocket of fluid next to my ankle. I was born severly club footed and without heels. My feet were never great but I could walk and work at least. I havent been able to work since 2006- and my feet completely gave out last May. Was in Fiberglass casts and aircasts til my surgery in January. Once my left foot is healed my right one will be done. They put in 9 titanium screws to fix my foot. Have u seen a podiatrist yet?
