Re: foot/leg pair

By 15 I had worn 16 casts, and 5 pairs of special shoes. Tried at 15 to break my foot and reset it. They instead, found a knot in my calf the size of a tennis ball. Through continued physical therapy and stupid doctors misdiagnosising me, I now at 23 have been informed after a mere work injury that my pelvis was not crooked, though told that 1 year ago but that my foot is 3/4 inch shorter than the other. Basically cravity has set so now if she is correct my pelvis has been pulled down and most of the tendons, etc are stretched beyond compare. Told to quit my job and find something where I sit. Also, a cane becomes my new leg. Do I need surgery and is this fixable.
