I'm 31 and was born with both feet severely affected by club foot. My toes on both feet were touching my ankles and in total I've now had 13 operations - first one when I was 2 days old and the last back in 2006. During the last operation they inseted a medical staple to hold the main bones together in my left foot.....in the last 6 months it's become stupidly painful. If I walk or stand for more than 30 minutes I end up needing painkillers as it gets so painful.....I often dread getting up in the mornings because it's so painful. Apparently this is because I'm now starting to suffer from arthritis....wonderful!!!
Daniel - when you say you have limited mobility, that sounds just like me as I can only wiggle my toes too!
Zummummy - my doctor has said that it's very likely that I'll soon start suffering from arthritis in my feet/ankles which is really annoying as I love being active.
Life goes on so we just have to power through with a smile on our faces
Good to hear I'm not the only one with silly bones, aches and pains x
