Re: one leg one inch longer


I live in Spain and I recently had surgery after an accident. I had a compound fracture to the femur and they had to take out 2cm of bone, leaving me with one leg shorter. They have now given me a 1cm innersole and 1 cm sole on the outside. I'm doing my rehab, but the shoe is really depressing me. It's ugly clumpy and embarrassing. I would like to know if there's hope for the future, i.e. will I ever be able to just wear something inside my shoe, even if I get an innersole of one and a half cm? Will the difference of half a cm be too much for my spine to cope?

Silicone inserts leave radius and ulna pressure-free and provide intermittent compression to the soft tissue of the joint, leading to increased circulation, thus aiding in the resorption of swelling and edema.
