Re: heel and ankle bone are not seperated
Sorry to hear of your loss. I lost mine a couple of years ago and it's tough. I would suspect the hip/groin thing is due to an altered gait pattern. It is almost inevitable that your gait would be altered due to one foot functioning differently than the other. This will likely resolve if you have surgery and physical therapy. They really work on gait patterns after foot surgery. Mine worked on my hip, too, as I was out of alignment due to poor gait. She did some things to bring me back level and then some exercises to keep myself that way.
If it were me, I wouldn't pursue anything regarding the hip until the foot issue is resolved.
