‘Almost four weeks ago, something in the ball of my left foot snapped while I was walking barefoot on floorboards. It had been a little sore in the lead up… but nothing too bad. Suddenly, I couldn’t put weight on it at all’ she said. 

‘Since then I’ve seen doctors, surgeons, had CT scans (first pic), MRIs (second pic) Cortisone injections (third pic) and the list goes on. Turns out, I have sesamoiditis,  which isn’t curable, but can be managed. 

‘But on top of that, I have a third sesamoid bone (the purple arrow points to it), which is abnormal (you should only have the two bones above it.) 

'I'm so totally out of whack and struggling to see a future through the fog, that it's not even funny. I've considered amputation' she said

'I've lived on crutches for the past four weeks. I crawl in and out of the shower. I can't do my normal job as a journalist, so I either have to present the news at the desk or produce from behind the scenes' she wrote

‘It’s likely I was born this way… but why it may be causing me problems now, no one can explain. There’s a chance I may need surgery to remove it.’

She continued by explaining that the illness had taken a mental toll on her to the point where she considered amputating her foot. 

‘I’ve lived on crutches for the past four weeks. I crawl in and out of the shower. I can’t do my normal job as a journalist, so I either have to present the news at the desk or produce from behind the scenes’ she said. 

'I'm terrified of the unknown and what I will and won't be able to do physically once a solution is found. I miss my old life. And suddenly the problems I thought I had before this, don't seem like problems at all' she continued

‘I’m terrified of the unknown and what I will and won’t be able to do physically once a solution is found. I miss my old life. And suddenly the problems I thought I had before this, don’t seem like problems at all’ she continued 

‘My social life has been shot to s**te. I’m exhausted from my mobility issues. I’m relying on my amazing circle of friends more than I ever thought I would and as a fiercely independent person, this brings me to tears. 

‘My morning routine of attending @_fitnessxo_ is gone. I’m so totally out of whack and struggling to see a future through the fog, that it’s not even funny. I’ve considered amputation.’

Candice concluded:  ‘I’m terrified of the unknown and what I will and won’t be able to do physically once a solution is found. I miss my old life. And suddenly the problems I thought I had before this, don’t seem like problems at all.

'Please never, ever, underestimate the privilege of being healthy and able. If you can plant two feet on the ground and stand up' she added

Sesamoiditis is an inflammation of the sesamoid bones and tendons in the ball of the foot. 

It is commonly found in dancers and athletes that put excessive pressure on their feet. 

It is normally treated with rest and anti-inflammatory medication and can resolve on its own, but chronic cases require surgery to remove the sesamoid bone.
