club foot momma

My son, Mason was born with bilateral club feet. Although no one in either side of the family was born with it, and they say it is hereditary. He's been through the Ponsetti casts and the bilateral tendon release surgery. He's been in his Ponsetti braces for a few months, we are now to the point where he only needs to be in them for bedtime (for the next 4 years ). I noticed today that it appears as if his feet are turning in again, even though we follow the Dr's instructions to the letter to keep this from happening. His calves still appear bowed, although that could just be the way his fat formed from the casts. He has a Dr apt to get looked at. I'm just wondering if anyone else has experienced this post surgery? I'm worried he's going to have to be casted again. Now at 7 months that would really anger my tiny beast.

First he's adorable! I'm sorry you're going through this. I wish your little speedy recovery and healing. I don't have any experience with this.

I don't have any experience with this, but if his feet are turning my guess is he may need the braces on more often that just at bedtime.

Mason is so precious!!

I didn't have this experience. My son had to wear the special shoes for a good while. But his feet were fine afterward- a very mild case. My nephew didn't have to wear corrective shoes, but his parents were told every time they changed him to manipulate his feet so they would be straighter, and this worked for his light case also.

Mason's is a far more severe case. I hope you let us know what you find out?
