What happened to Alisha Williams' feet? A look at 'My Feet Are Killing Me' star's accident
Neoeko met with an unfortunate car accident back in 2008. At the time of the event itself, she recalls how her ankle was dangling and was even disconnected from the shin. That sure does sound painful!
After a thorough consultation, along with her mother, Joyce, the doctors had suggested having Neoeko's foot amputated altogether. To this, Neoeko's mother was firm with the doctors to work their magic, so that her foot stays in place and in the picture.
The decision to keep the foot in place and literally create an inner ankle explains the skin grafting on Neoeko's foot, which later resulted in the huge bulge on her ankle. A year or two after her surgery, Neoeko began to feel like her bones started to shift and even felt unstable and in pain, something that continues to persist even today.
After a detailed physical examination, Dr Ebonie reveals that Neoeko's case is not normal at all! In addition, the skin graft is ginormous, and the patient's foot is broken. What's alarming to both Dr Ebonie as well as viewers is how this woman has been able to walk all these years on an unstable and shaky foot.
What will be the plan of action Dr Ebonie decides to take on this case? We're just as intrigued as you! Tune in to know how the doctor breaks a leg with this one.
Season 4 of 'My Feet Are Killing Me' premieres on Wednesday, May 4, 2022, at 9 pm ET, only on TLC.
