i have had all the toes in my left foot fused, was due to go and have right foot done but various other more urgent things have come up (such as double mid foot fusions on both feet
) so the right foot is still to be sorted>
do not have both feet done at the same time if you can help it! it was extremely awkward for me to have 1 done, walking is possible (with the aid of crutches) as i was told to only 10% weight bear for quite a while. i had the end joint and middle joint fused in all my toes. it was very painful for first week or two post op, but the pain soon settled and it was nothing i hadn't expected.
i had pins sticking out the four smaller toes and two screws put into my big toe. the pins were removed but the screws remain.
i definately found it was worth it although the bottom joints now need doing as they have twisted too because of the way i walk
but i wouldn't refuse to have them done! i have definately seenthe benefit from my surgery, any more questions, just ask xx
