    Tethered Spinal Cord and Cavovarus foot


    My son has had 2 tethered spinal cord releases since 10 months of age. Along with the tethered cord, he has had 4 surgeries on his left foot to correct a cavovarus foot deformity. He is very upset about his foot. He doesn't like the way it looks, it hurts sometimes, he walks with a limp, can't keep up with his friends and the left foot is about 6 sizes smaller than the right. He also should be wearing an orthotic in his shoe. (He does wear it at times,but not like he should).

    He is having a very difficult time dealing with these issues. I should also say that he has PDD, Bi-Polar Depression and Anxiety Disorder, wears galsses and braces. He has it all.

    His father has not been in his life for 12 years. I am a single Mom. Fortunately, I have a job in outside sales and can be flexible when needed. Does anyone know of someone that has a cavovarus foot that might be willing to discuss their disability and offer him support?

    I would really appreciate it.
