Re: Flat Feet
I agree that it was major surgery, but I didnt have the surgery until I was 21, and now not only do I have severe arthritis in both feet, I have done permanent knee and hip damage as well. My feet hurt in the winter, and thats bc the metal pins get cold and retract. I guess you have to weigh the benefits vs. risks. I bet if I was your son, I would be mad that I had the surgery, only bc I never expereinced all the other problems yet, so i had nothing to compare too. Now, since I did go through all the knee, ankle, and hip problems, and now have irreversable damage to my ligaments and joints, I really wish I would have had the surgery when I was younger.
