What happened to Michele Caputo?
The circumstances around Michele Caputo’s death currently remain a mystery.
Fans were shocked that TLC paid tribute to her after her episode aired, but no details were revealed as to her sudden passing.
Some speculated she might have succumbed to complications from Covid, a few thought she may have had cancer.
“I can’t believe that Michele Caputo passed away especially after she was so happy with her surgery and pain free. So sad. #MyFeetAreKillingMe,” one fan wrote on Twitter.
What was wrong with her feet?
One of Dr. Bradley ‘Brad’ Schaeffer’s patients, Michele had a painful hammer toe she wanted to remedy.
“It feels ugly,” she had once said after describing the pain from the bony bump that had developed on her foot from a young age.
A hammertoe is “a toe that has an abnormal bend in its middle joint, making the toe bend downward to look like a hammer,” according to Medical News Today.
The painful condition forms due to an imbalance in the surrounding muscles, tendons, or ligaments that normally keep the toe straight.
Michele’s story on the show was touching as she described how all she ever wanted was to paint her toes, dress up, and wear open-toed shoes without fear of judgement.
