Angry Foot fusion failure

My story is long but I'll try to shorten it. I have had my feet break 4 times in 5 years. Both times identical in both feet. Last time in the mid cuneiform bones. I was told this was unheard of. My dr did a lot to try non invasive procedures with no luck. Finally in September last year I had a complete mid foot fusion on the right and then in November the same in the left. My feet have been miserable since. My left having some relief in the past month. My right has been so bad that it makes me nauseated at times. I've been back to my dr 9 times And repeat X-rays were repeated and I was told the fusion was ok in it and to just wait for up to a year. It has continued to get worse, causing depression from the chronic pain. Yesterday I had a ct scan in both feet revealing that my right foot never fused. Now I have had 4 surgeries in 6 months (others were hysterectomy and laparoscopic) And left not being stable for another at this time. My question is does anyone have insight on this? I'm in only an ankle brace (which seems to not help) and my dr is going to have me start pt again and wait ANOTHER month to repeat ct. I'm so frustrated and tired of the pain!!!
