My daughter was born with talipes. She had a tendon cut at

Resolved Question:

My daughter was born with talipes. She had a tendon cut at 9 months old. She is now 22 and is in constant pain with her leg. She has seen her muscular therapist, had a MRI and scan. She saw a Orthopaedic sure today who said there is nothing they can do and to have a pain injection. She is inconsolable. The physiotherapist said that it is like a solid rope at the back of her leg being rubbed in concrete. It is raw at the back of her foot. Help

OK Stephanie--where exactly does your daughter live? I have an answer for you but I can only give you my referral suggestion if I know where she lives

She lives in Putney in London, her email address is *****@******.***

OK. She needs to contact one of the surgeons in the link I'm going to give you. It sounds like what she needs is either a tendon transfer or a tendon graft
