Just wanted to update the people I talked to about my feet problems. Orthopedic surgeon looked at the xrays, had me to walk barefoot "OUCH"! and then had me to try to walk on tip toes! Wasnt easy but I made a couple and then he examined further. For some reason he asked me if I had numbness in my feet and I said actually I had some. He rubbed my foot and asked me if I could feel it, I said yes some, then he rubbed my arm and asked compared to that? Nothing alike! I didn't tell him anything about me discussing this with my first Podiatrist about 9yr ago so theyre something to it. Anyway he said that I need to go to a Neurologist to see whats going on with that and have a CT scan of my feet. He did confirm that I need surgery and that I would always need orthotics. I will see him again after ther Neuro and CT. I didnt time him but I swear it took about 6-8 min talking into his recorder just about my feet problems and he was chatting into pretty fast! I told him that I would like to hold off till winter before any surgeries because Ive lost too many summers in the past. June 07 broke toe lol, May 08 crushed foot,Aug 09 liver failure, month in hosp. 2010-11 recuperating and broke from that. April-2012 kidney tumor removed. Thanks for reading!!!!
