She learned herself to walk very good but you still can see something is wrong there, now 2005 she went back to the doctor and she was informed she have a bad influmantion in this foot.... She must get a new op... What is your advise, is this advisible....? I am a medicical lawyer am I want to sue, but she does not wish to...?

Without seeing you mother I am really unable to add any comment on whether she needs an op , I really would be speaking out of turn.
I suggest you discuss your concerns with the doctor, and if you are still unsure ask for a second opinion
