Second of all are the X-rays. The first one below is the before shot. The orthopedist informed me that an indicator of proper alignment of your foot, and presence of an arch, is the position of your ankle relative to your big toe. You can see this in both a top and side view of my foot, but I've only included the side view below. To all my doctor friends out there...shut up, I don't know what medial and axial means, so I'm not using those terms, let alone naming these bones properly. Clearly, from the first X-ray you can see that my ankle bone is pointing toward the middle of my foot, it's not properly supported. I've drawn neat little arrows on there to help you out. A view from the top would show my ankle bone pointing way inward instead of at my big toe.
see previous post for an explanation). Screws were involved, and you can see from both the side view and the above view where the surgeon shifted my heel bone to - both toward the inside of my foot (medially? did I get it right?), and closer to the bottom of my foot.
