Yesterday we saw another surgeon specialising in foot surgery.
This surgeon had a more conservative view. In his opinion we should wait and keep Xinqiao under observation (once a year) until major problems arise (problems walking, pain, shoe problems, etc.). We should also have x-rays done on a regular basis (every 6 ms) in order to understand if the disease progresses and at what speed.
Should problems arise, we will then consider what kind of surgery should be performed.
If we are lucky we can wait until Xinqiao becomes older (say 14) and is able to participate in the informed decision-making process.
He also gave us a suggestion: we should buy hard-soled shoes.
Has anybody idea about the usefulness of this? (I find contrasting views to this regard in the internet).
