Re: problems after fusion of the big toes

Hi Debbie...my Doc seems to think the pain in the smaller joint in the top of my toes may settle down, if not I will have to have steroid injections but I can have only 3 of these (I did ask him to take the top of my toes off but he did not think to much of this idea). Having done some reaserch on implants, and that is what a plate and pins are, I discovered that the infections that I am getting could come from the implant and I may have to get them out.
It's lucky I live in the UK as the opperations cost nothing here.
