... this route and how I am now being helped with NO surgery or orthotics. My feet were as crooked as a politician's at one time and I now have nice arches.

... I am having it done by a pod who specializes in foot surgery. Unlike the last pod I was seeing who advised me to have the nerve decompression.

If I had known them what I know now I would have most likely just... (10 replies)

... t back to him to have the inserts adjusted and all he did was put a stick under one of them. When I first went to this therapist, I had hammer toes, flat feet, a bunion forming and very, very weak ankles. He has done more for me than any podiatrist could even dream of doing. ... (6 replies)

... with my feet. I did have my bunions and hammer toes fixed years ago, and, lo and behold, one of the feet was going back to the bad way recently.

... Iwa, how are things going for you with your foot and the swelling? Still wearing the compression sock? I went back to work on June 20th and worked for 5 days straight. My shifts were 5 - 6.5 hours but it's retail so add another 30 minutes on each day. I was ready to cut my feet off on day 5 but after a few days off things went back to "normal".
