Re: Lisfranc Fracture
I suffered a Lis Franc fracture/dislocation in 2007, while scaling a fence. Iíve never felt so much pain in my life.
Long story short, I was rushed into emergency surgery. My foot was positioned back into place and held in position by (5) k wires. I was placed in a hard cast for 3 months, followed by pt for 2 months.
Here I thought a ďdislocationĒ would result in 100% recovery. Boy was I wrong. Although the pt/recovery process was quick, my foot never felt the same. This is how I can best describe it:
In appearance, my left foot (injured foot) appears as if the arch collapsed. Secondly, when I walk, while wearing shoes, it feels as if I am walking on a stone. Does that make sense? To be more clear, it feels as if my foot doesnít align perfectly well with the shape of the shoe. The only time my foot feels natural is when I take it out of the shoe and let it sit/rest.
Iíve tried several pairs of custom orthodics soles, and nothing seems to fix the problem. After a long day on my feet, I need to rush home and roll my foot on a frozen bottle.
Iím 30 years now, and I hate the feeling. I walk and run perfectly normal, but at the cost of suffering this uncomfortable feeling. I wouldnít consider it as a pain, but more of a daunting, uncomfortable, tiring, sore feeling.
Does this story sound familiar to anyone? I would truly appreciate any feedback
