Re: hallux rigidus surgery
Thanks, Bruce587. I've found an orthopedic surgeon at one of the best places around. He lists HR as a specialty plus he's a marathoner/triathlete. I'm seeing him week after next. Will let you all know what he says.
One other symptom I'm wondering if anyone else has--horrible cramping--like charley horse cramping--in the foot. Any time of day, lots of times at night. One doc said it was because I'm constantly holding the foot funny, the muscles are just overworked. And, my toe is more painful in the am as well. I guess that's typical with arthritis. Ice helps.
