I'm finally having the procedure done. They are gonna lenthen my tendon one on the left side of my ankle the other on the top of my foot and they are gonna realign the medial bones of my foot. I'm really hoping this surgery will work i'm running out of options. I'm only 29 years old and the arthritis is killing me.
I'm ok, I am almost 3 weeks post-op a gastroc recession and sural nervectomy. I am walking so all is good there, but my pain isn't much better. I am giong crazy because I have seen so many doctors and don't know what to do. I would like to look into finding a highly skilled podiatrist but haven't been successful yet, i find the ones who just do bunions.. Its frustrating. But surgery went well, my fevers are spiking again. Kinda sucks. I am confused.
Hope you get well soon,
I have very flat feet, My big toe joint and arches used to really ache,
I thought about orthotics, but they cost to much.
I use Archatomics-custom arch supports, you can find them on the web, they work great, plus they have alot of valuable foot information.
Good luck, Mike
