Question fused bones in feet

Hi everyone,

I have two fused bones in my left foot, and one fused bone in my right foot. This can make my feet very painful at times. My doctor would like to do sugery some time and put cartilage taken from a dead person and some how put between the bones. I'm not sure how this is done if the bones are fused together. Does anyone here have fused bones in their feet? Does anyone know the cause of having fused bones in your feet? The medical term my doctor used for the fused bones was "multiple tarsal coalition" if that helps at all. Thanks

Nancy P.

Try doing research on the medical term that the doctor gave you on the internet. You will most likely find information that can help you understand more about your condition.
Take care

Well, I have tried doing a search on the web for the medical term multiple tarsal coalition and couldn't find any information. I was just hoping that there might be someone else out there with the same foot problem. Thanks for repsonding.
