    Questions...PTTD, Adult Acquired Flatfoot, Spring Ligament Tear, Arizona Brace

    I'm a 29 year old female that was diagnosed with PTTD and adult acquired flatfoot approximately 6 months ago. I tried out custom orthotics for about 4 months, but they don't seem to offer enough support and I still get fairly severe pain. After getting an MRI, it showed that I have a tear in my spring ligaments, tendinopathy of the PTT and arthrosis of the os naviculare. My doctor suggested the Arizona brace, although he did suggest surgery as well considering my age. I decided to try out the Arizona brace for now in the hopes that it will provide some relief until my schedule allows for surgery. I should be getting the brace in 3-4 weeks.

    My questions are--

    Will I be wearing my orthotic on my other foot? I'm just questioning if nothing is worn, how will this affect the back, knees, etc.

    Have any of you tried shoes other than sneakers with the Arizona brace? If yes, suggestions of brands please.

    Is it somewhat comfortable?

    How many of you decided to get surgery after trying the brace out? What exactly did you have done? The recovery period? Was it successful?

    Thank you for any information, it's appreciated.
