it was last year . i was 18 and had to hav surgery for my left foot. i was born with club feet and it has been a battle every day for me and my feet .it was mid way thru football season and i went to the doctors for pain that had kept on gettin worse. so they sent me up to columbus to c a orthopedics and he told me that surgery could b performed. but there was a chance that surgery would do more harm than help me . i took that chance on november 2 i went in for surgery. it was scary b/c i only had surgery done one other time and that was when i was a babie. it took them 8 hours to do the surgery . they cut both into my hip to take bone out of it for a crater in my foot . then after that they cut both sides of my foot open and inserted the bone into the hole in my foot. i had to give up a lot . i wasnt able to play basketball , or run track my senior year . i was out of school for a month and they told me that i wouldnt b able to wlk for about 7 to 8 months . which sucked . for the first month i was out of school the board decided they didnt kno if i would b able to graduate . they told me that i would hav to pull all a's and b's . its been a year now since surgery and they still hurt me like they did b4. but all u can do is fight the pain and move on . dont let the pain get to ya . they told me the first time i went up to columbus that i shouldnt even b wlking as bad as my feet were lettin alonre playing football .
