As well as a constant limp, Katie also suffers from “shocks of lightning shooting” up her feet.

She said: “I’ve been given two sets of painkillers but I can’t take them because I’m scared of becoming addicted, so I’m just in constant pain.”

In addition, Katie revealed: “I’ve got a limp when I walk now as one leg is longer than the other because of all the metal in the foot — I waddle like a duck. It does make me feel a bit paranoid.”

Furthermore, the mum-of-five is seeking legal advice following the horror fall.

The accident has resulted in her seeking physiotherapy sessions four times a week – plus surgery.

Katie continued: “This has all affected our home life dramatically. I can’t do fun things with my kids any more, such as trampolining. I also have to take a wheelchair if I want to go on a long family walk.”

Alongside the shot, Katie penned: “For people who said I haven’t broken my feet or people saying I had a bunion operation (even though I’ve never had bunions) still won’t admit they wrongly accused me and speculated again saying I’ve made it all up, will now see I wasn’t lying to the point.

“I’ve had MAJOR SURGERY to my life-changing injuries.”

Katie, who has admitted to regularly taking her cast off, posted the snaps after a visit to Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

Following her accident, she needed an eight-hour operation to fuse the bones back together with screws and plates.
