    Sweetie, my advice would be to go to an ortho Dr. and have an evaluation. Then you would have reliable answers.

    Yes definitely go see an Orthopedic surgeon if you are wondering. We are not doctors, and you would need evaluation by one. Keep posting and let us know how you are doing! We care! :)

    I agree with tho other folks---it would be in your best interest to make an appointment with an Os and see what he has to say.

    Perhaps then too, a podiatrist, who would look at how you are walking and whether some simple orthotics would correct any issue you might have and put off the need for surgery down the line (hopefully). I always had very flat feet and thought nothing of it. However, the pronation it caused may well have exacerbated my eventual deterioration of my hips and knees. :hairpulling:

    Definitely yes! The orange line is roughly where your knee should be and the red line shows how much valgus deformity it has. That plus the callouses pretty much clinch it.
