Re: osteomyelitis of 5th metatarsal

Gdub,
Thanks for your input, I guess not too many people have had this done???? I haven't had a single reply on my post on foot problems! How come you are just starting to take IV antibiotics?
I'm having the problem of finding an orthopaedic surgeon that I like and trust, I've been to about 4-5.
How long do you have to be off of your foot post surgery? Is it an inpatient procedure? Did your doc tell you what the recovery time would be if you had the head removed?
Sorry for all the questions, but of course the doc and his assistant are on vacation, and my foot is getting really bad. This morning I almost had to pull out the crutches!
Thanks so much for your input.
