Rideout was born with spina bifida, a birth defect that affects the spine and can cause physical and intellectual disabilities, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Diagnoses can range from mild to severe, and some people may have little or no disability. Each year about 1,645 babies are born with spina bifida.

The condition has left her with little sensation in her feet, which is why she initially didn't notice the break. But the fall left her feeling like something was wrong and she decided to go to the hospital.

"I told them … 'I don't feel anything on my feet ever. And now I do feel something - which is very, very strange for me,'" Rideout told CBC.

Rideout said she went to the Health Sciences Centre in St. John's, where she was told she had torn cartilage and should keep as much weight off her leg as possible.

When she got home after walking a 20-minute journey home from the hospital, she took off her shoe and found her foot to be swollen and bruised. She then walked back to the hospital for an X-ray of her foot, and was told by doctors that they saw nothing wrong.

Two months later, she developed a blister on her foot and headed the hospital for antibiotics.

"They did X-rays on it … and the doctor on call in the ER that night told me that I had multiple breaks in my foot and asked if there was an injury that happened," Rideout recalled, adding that she told them she had fallen two months earlier.

She was sent home and told she would have to return daily for treatments. Days later she returned to the hospital with a high fever and was put on IV antibiotics.

She then received a referral to a wound-care clinic and an orthopedic surgeon intervened with her treatment.

"He listened to me more. I found he was more thoughtful about what I was saying and he understood that I have no feeling in my feet - [that] this is what can happen and how bad it can get," she said.

In January, Rideout underwent surgery to clean out the infection in her foot and she became "extremely ill," with vomiting and a high fever.

After having an MRI on the foot, the orthopedic surgeon determined that the only way to ensure the infection would not come back was to amputate Rideout's right leg below the knee.

She finally had her leg amputated in March, six months after her fall.

Now Rideout is urging others to speak out about their heath concerns.

"Fight for their medical rights, and if you think that something's wrong, say it," she told CBC. "And if they don't listen to you, find someone else who will."
