Hi,
I am not a tri-athlete but a tennis player that had surgery last year for hallus rigidus, a step worse than you have. I had no movement left in my big toe joint anyway, so my dr. surgically fused it, and I am back on the tennis court better than ever..and doing a lot of running. The pain before the surgery was awful, and now 4 months later, I can hit balls and run for 2-3 hrs. pain free. You have to do research I think, and decide what kind of motion is important to your sport. Good luck,
Sue
