my husband is 48 years old and has a left leg that is 3/4 of and inch shorter than other due to broken tib/fib this short leg was not found for 20 years now he is due for back surgury for L4 L5 s1 disc fused or called plif he has been having problems with his knees and ankles giving out and hurting and hip pain he has been told there is no connection with his short leg that is service connected as is his lower back they dont seem to want to tie the other three problems into this leg and back problem i feel due to money so they say that its due to the fact that he is a walking mailman i feel that that profession has not helped his problems but i feel from all that i have been able to read that this leg issue is the main problem of all those issues. any help ?
