OMG, I have just got over shoulder surgery to stabilise it.
Now i am on the waiting list to have toe broken and realigned(they are putting an implant in to ensure it stays there) because of the shape of one of the bones in my foot, all the pressure when walking goes into 2nd toe and I often have to walk on the sides of my feet. This has caused pressure in the knee and has made ligamnets, tendons and cartilage swell and I aslo have fluid on the knee.
When I saw the surgeon, he gave me 2 choices, go on the waiting list now or wait til you can't walk. Not much of a choice then, is it? lol
As if that wasnt enough, surgeon says that eventually I may have to have others broken at some poiint in the future. Apparently they cannot just reshape the bone that is mis shapen because, knee and hip bones are mis shapen so if they did that, it would put more pressure on knee/hips.
I am not looking forward to 6-8 weeks in a cast and on crutches
Anyone had/heard of this sort of surgery? I am not sure it is that common because 3 consultants all conferred about the best way to deal with the problem.
What's normal if everybody is different?
