So you still did not answer my question, how was she able to let a broken feet grow?

I am not sure what you mean. The point of binding the feet was to stop them growing. The point of breaking the feet was to enhance their shape.

If the bandages were taken off, then growth would resume if it were done soon enough, I expect.

As to what happened from a medical point of view, I do not know.

I am not doctor either, that is why I am asking. The way I understood what was happening was like that: they (whom ever were doing it) would brake girls' foot, physically break the bone and fold the foot in practically half. Then they would bind/wrap the foot so it would stay like that. Taking wrapping of in my opinion would have not changed anything.

You would have to check with a doctor about that.

Xiaosui, I just read your stories. Your father was a very wise man, very much like my own father.
