Been diagnosed with cavus foot (high arches) and have been told my running may be over! Anyone out there have any assistance to keep me on the road?

I have had nothing but problems since last August with my feet. It started with plantar faschitis and now I have been told I have this high arch issue which is causing more issues.  I had a gait analysis and was put in different shoes which has helped. I stretch on an incline board and that has helped the faschitis.  The doctor told me that his wife had the same problem. She got a mini-bunion under her little toe like I have, and ended up having surgery and he told me "she doesn't run anymore."  I have been really down in the dumps since hearing this.  Any advice out 

there that will keep me running?   I have read so much conflicting advice and articles that I'm confused.  Thanks!
