Re: hemi implant

[QUOTE=bocadiva;4159990]Yes, first MTP joint. From what I've heard, the fusion is not reversable so if you've had that done you cannot go back.[/QUOTE]


That is my understanding too. I chose this route because I did not want to face another foot surgery in a year or two. I felt that the fusion was in my future no matter what, so I decided to do it and get it over with. So far, so good. It is better than the initial condition.

I hope your foot heals well and is all that you hope it will be.
