A member asked:

How can physical changes in foot from untreated compartment syndrome - high arch, cavus foot, & claw toes - be fixed? can an achilles lengthening fix?

No : Achilles lengthening won't fix those problems. Try to avoid any more surgical intervention until it's all you have left. Exhaust physical therapy & other noninvasive treatments first.
